Not much detail at:

Microsoft is finally set to launch officially its Windows Rights Management Service (RMS) next Tuesday at the RSA Europe show. The Redmondiands had been hoping to launchearlier in October, so as to be ready by the time Office 2003 rolled out, but an alleged last-minute bug nixed that plan. RMS consists of three components: the RMS Server, RMS client and RMS Internet Explorer add-on. Office 2003 is the first rights-enabled application from Microsoft. And � just to be clear � the RMS code and Microsoft’s DRM code in Windows Media products [Get Ready; Here Comes Windows Rights Management]

Microsoft page:

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.
