DRM Radios and Equipment

Note to the Manufacturers of DRM equipment

A DRM Patent Pool was formed in 2003 in order to facilitate a simple “One-stop” licensing regime for manufacturers. There is no link, either financial or managerial, between the DRM Consortium and this pool of licensors.The licensing of DRM IPR is undertaken by VIA Licensing, a Licensing Administrator acting on behalf of the licensor patent pool: see www.vialicensing.com . The VIA web-site gives details of royalty fees for all classes of DRM equipment. There is no royalty charge for actual use of the system(broadcasting or reception).
