For scalability of business, multiparty multilevel digital rights management (DRM) architecture, where a multimedia content is delivered by an owner to a consumer through several levels of distributors has been suggested as an alternative to the traditional two party (buyer-seller) DRM architecture. A combination of cryptographic and watermarking techniques are usually used for secure content delivery and protecting the rights of seller and buyer in the two party DRM architecture. In a

In this paper, we propose a mechanism which takes care of the above security issues, for delivering multimedia content through multiparty multilevel DRM architecture.
