Microsoft to patch app that strips DRM technology


Microsoft Corp. plans to patch an application that can strip Windows Media files of their DRM (digital rights management) technology.

Reports surfaced last week on the Internet that the FairUse4WM application could be used to remove Windows Media DRM 10 and 11 protection from digital media files. In response, Microsoft confirmed Tuesday that it will update its Windows Media DRM system to "address the circumvention," according to a statement from its public relations firm.
