Marlin DRM technology

Marlin digital rights management (DRM) technology provides maximum flexibility to meet the demands of consumers, device manufacturers and service providers.

Today’s digital media consumers demand that content of all types must flow freely between devices, regardless of business models or device platforms.


Marlin is the only content protection technology available as an open standard. DRM should not be restricted to one set of vendors. Put the decision-making power back where it belongs: the customer.


Marlin provides maximum flexibility by adapting to a wide range of devices and business models. Consumers can enjoy content on their terms.


Marlin not only protects high definition and ultra high definition video, it also works with audio, eBooks, games, images, cloud storage and more. With Marlin, DRM is the enabler for all digital media.
