A group of technology companies this week will start unveiling a new system for protecting digital content, including music and movies. Known as the “Hudson Project”, the group is made up of Intel, Nokia, Samsung, Toshiba and Matshushita. This group’s DRM plan would use the Internet and allow wireless devices to share content on a limited basis or trial content before buying. According to the New York Times, the approach taken by the Hudson Project could be billed as an alternative to Microsoft’s own DRM technology, as a well as a offerings from RealNetworks, Apple and others. The final wraps on the Hudson Project plan will be taken off sometime in February.
