It just got a lot easier and safer to publish your media online. MediaKey Incorporated is a licensed Microsoft Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution and service provider.

MediaKey has formed an alliance with global phone-billing provider PasswordByPhone in order to provide phone billing options for DRM-protected content.

DRM specialists MediaKey and global phone billing processor PasswordByPhone and have now fully integrated their respective systems, allowing content owners to sell DRM-protected media to a global audience.

Consumers must obtain a media license that limits them to a number of plays or other options that the right owner may decide. Multiple authentication modules are available with support for pay-per-view sales as well as subscription based services.

The PPV option is the standard PasswordByPhone mechanism obtaining passwords heard over the phone. The consumers dial a premium number and get charged by the minute.
Once the desired pricing is achieved they receive a passcode to obtain a media license. The system is also great for promotional material, that can easily be tracked and changed to billable on the fly if desired.

Use of the DRM-PPV module is covered by a nominal fee, which is subtracted from the usual PasswordByPhone payouts. The innovative billing system allows surfers to pay for content via their phone bill.

“Phone billing is very popular in Europe,” says PasswordByPhone’s business development manager, Marc Jarrett. “In our experience, Europeans are in general much more reluctant to use their credit cards online, so phone billing for DRM-protected content is a valuable alternative for content providers offering premium and exclusive content. Phone billing can be used for both subscriptions and pay-per-view content and is well suited for both video and music content.”

MediaKey’s chief executive officer, Leon Standly, says, “DRM clients are aggressively moving towards pay-per-view in order to sustain revenues from a fading subscription based market. Obviously, our primary role is to provide rock-solid content protection, but in effect our palette of integrated billing options has proven to be very popular and thus giving us a nice great competitive edge. We provide reliable billing integration modules to the world’s leading billing providers as an integral part of a MediaKey DRM solution. Our customers appreciate that they don’t have to switch billing providers to heap the maximum benefits from a MediaKey DRM-solution.

“Phone billing also seems to be catching on in the U.S, so demand is expected to go up significantly as content providers are struggling with subscriber retention and to maintain credit card processing relationships,” Standly adds.

PasswordByPhone facilitates convenient and affordable payment transactions compared to credit cards. With a Geo-IP tracking module, content owners are able to offer dynamic payment options, so that only surfers from a specific range of countries will be offered the pay-by-phone option.

“If you want more European customers or simply convenient billing transactions and at the same time reduce costs – this is it,” says Standly.
