HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
Widevine’s intuitive DRM management tools offer total control over the encryption, key management, distribution and consumption of digital media. Preconfigured policies, digital rights and encryption are applied to inbound assets, automatically registered with Widevine and the CMS, then uploaded to a destination partner network or CDN. Subsequent delivery to CE devices is secured using Widevine’s multiplatform DRM client on each device. As bandwidth conditions change, Widevine’s adaptive streaming adjust the bit rate to the highest quality video. For an added level of protection the Widevine client monitors, detects and responds to tools that pirate content even after content has been decrypted.

these tools copy content while it’s in the clear—typically after traditional DRM systems have done their job. Digital Copy Protection monitors, detects and protects content on any internet connected device, preventing this method of piracy from occurring. This addition level of protection is a necessary requirement for preserving the revenue streams of content owners, Internet digital media providers and payTV operators. Here's How It Works: Content is encrypted, stored and distributed to the user who then watches it in a browser or video player. During playback, encrypted content has been decrypted and the video is now vulnerable to piracy simply by downloading a free software tools such as screen scrapers and stream recorders which can pirate the video stream to a DRM-free file. Prevent Screen and Stream Recording Piracy Widevine's Digital Copy Protection adds an additional level of protection against the hundreds of software tools available on the internet that record content and enable piracy. Known as stream recorders and screen scrapers,
