Purpose of this contribution is to propose a method that it is expected will help identify the hurdles that block the success of the Digital Media Revolution.

While it would be possible to identify specific hurdles applying to specific instances of Digital Media deployments, this would provide hints on an episodic basis and may not help identify common hurdles across different deployments.

Digital Media is about redesigning the value chain and the role of the players in it. Therefore an analysis of the hurdles can only be made by considering the entire value chain for each different Digital Media instance.

It is suggested that every study be made using the following structure

1. Introduction

2. Description of the traditional use case

Note that in some cases this part may not exist

2.1 Traditional functions

2.2 Traditional value chain players

2.3 Technologies used in the traditional use case

2.4 Legislative framework of the traditional use case

2.5 Business model of the traditional use case

3. Description of the digital use case

3.1 Functions of the digital use case

3.2 Value chain players in the digital use case

3.3 Technologies used in the digital use case

3.4 Cost/benefits for value chain players

3.5 Legislative framework of the digital use case

3.6 Business model of the digital use case

3.7 Difficulties of current deployments
