That every human being can be a creator as well as a
consumer of digital media to which they either have intellectual property
rights or have somehow legally obtained usage rights as well as necessary
That a digital rights management platform of some kind
is a necessity, although the ability to restrict access to digital media
shall always be optional, also that the Internet or some other free transmission
of data does not have to comply with Digital Media Project standards for
these are to protect bitstreams and not to prevent unprotected bitstreams
of data from being transmitted, and also let a million digital rights management
schemes bloom provided that the DMP bitstreams conform with the specification
for the overall DMP DRM platform.
That access to the DMP DRM platform shall always be free
and available to every human being to the degree possible, given age and
regional legal restrictions, both to sell and to buy and to share digital
media in whatever open manner is compliant with attendant licensing restrictions.
That intellectual properties as referred to by the DMP
will be only those coded into the bitstream handling that is part of the
DMP DRM platform, so that useful parsing can occur and a global market can
thrive for digtal media.
That the fruits and benefits of digital technology should
be used and their characteristics exploited, including digital media, in
a general manner that benefits society and specifically allows licensing
transactions to be negotiated online, so that the international exchange
of ideas can benefit and so that commercial prospertity can be encouraged,
for digital media will increasingly become capable of being manipulated
in new ways as human experience with it grows more fluent.
That certain reasonable instances of copying exist such
as notating music for private use or copying a reference out of a reference
book in the library, as well as reasonable instances of quoting text or
storing an archival copy, all of which must be allowed at all times by any
DMP DRM platform data, except that encrypted formations are permitted provided
they comply with the DMP specification for parsing of the bitstream.
Recognizing that intellectual property litigation may
be brought as governed by regional jurisprudential standards, and that enforcement
and laws are at times inconsistent, DMP will seek to be an impartial preserve,
protecting the DRM platform's integrity as a fundamental protocol for global
communication with the potential for commercial transactions and media licensing.
