Microsoft Windows� Rights Management Services for Windows Server 2003 works with applications to help safeguard information�no matter where it goes�for people who need to protect sensitive Web content, documents, and e-mail. Windows Rights Management enables protection of information through the simple creation and enforcement of persistent rules that live with the information, so you can decide if your sensitive Web content or confidential documents can be changed or printed, or if your sensitive e-mail can be forwarded to other parties.
