Digital Rights Management (DRM) devices provide persistent protection, the means to control the rendering of digital content to users. This enables new kinds of agreements between parties involved in trading intangible goods such as digital music. In this paper we propose a language and model capable of expressing a range of licenses of the kind that DRMs may be expected to support.
