Adobe today announced that it is extending digital rights management, DRM, for Flash files which are downloaded by users.  

While Flash is popularly used to stream video, more high quality, longform content is going to be increasingly downloaded more and content owners want more protection.

This effort to beef up DRM, has been available since March of last year.  For an explanation of the need for DRM around Flash, we interviewed Adobe's Laurel Reitman. We have republished the interview today.

For more on what the DRM means and and the several other Adobe announcements today,  check out this wrap-up by Chris Albrecht at NewTeeVee.
