TheRegister (UK) has an article describing, among other things, Sun's and Microsoft's collaboration on DRM. Snippets:
Work is ... underway for Sun technologies to "plug-into" Microsoft's DRM software.
Ben Lenail, primary Microsoft relationship manger at Sun, said the companies are "pretty well engaged" on management, with deliverables expected later this year and in 2006, while work on DRM is planned for the next six to nine months.
News of the deliverables come more than a year into a deal that has, by the companies' own admission, experienced some difficulty in hitting its stride.
