PLI offers many advantages such as intrusion and fault tolerance, flexibility, scalability, reliability, high availability. We then propose a PLI-based DRM system to provide content protection and digital rights management for users of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks. This DRM system is especially useful for small content providers such as peers in a P2P network who cannot afford the conventional server/client based DRM system and traditional distribution channels. Key Words: Peer-to-Peer (P2P), digital content protection, Digital Rights Management (DRM), Public License Infrastructure (PLI), License Authority (LA), intrusion tolerance, secret sharing, proactive shares update, distr...
