    • A thorough understanding of the current issues facing the content industries
    • An in-depth knowledge of the way technology is shaping changes in the management, protection and trading of media rights and content
    • A clear vision of how the effective combination of business and technical solutions will provide a robust DRM infrastructure, leading to healthy revenue streams for all stakeholders
