How to: Use built-in rights

This topic outlines the built-in rights that the Microsoft Rights Management SDK 4.2 provides and usage restrictions that an app should enforce in honoring those restrictions. The following shows the built-in rights; common rights, editable document rights and email rights follwed by a description and their values by operating system.

Note - For the Linux SDK, see the rights.h source file for details.

Common Rights

All - A collection of all common rights.

Owner - The Owner right grants full control over the protected content.

View - The right to view protected content. Typically, when this right is granted, the application enables the user to open and view protected content; however, additional rights are required to modify, extract, forward, or save the content.

 

Editable Document Rights

All - A collection that contains all of the editable document rights.

Comment - The right to make comments on the document.

Edit - The right to edit protected content and save it in the same protected format. Typically, when this right is granted, the app enables the user to change protected content and then save it to the same file.

Export - The right to extract content from a protected format and place it in a different AD RMS-protected format. Typically, when this right is granted, the app enables the user to save protected content to other AD RMS-protected formats; for example, if the application implements a Save As functionality.

Extract - The right to extract content from a protected format and place it in an unprotected format. Typically, when this right is granted, the app enables the user to copy and paste information from protected content. If the app implements a Save As functionality, the application might also enable the user to save protected content to unprotected formats and other protected formats. This right has the same value as the Extract right for email.

Print - The right to print protected content. Typically, when this right is granted, the app enables the user to print protected content. This right has the same value as the Print right for email.

 

Email Rights

Extract - The right to extract content from a protected format and place it in an unprotected format. Typically, when this right is granted, the app enables an email recipient to copy and paste information from a protected message. If the app implements a Save As functionality, the application might also enable the recipient to save protected content to unprotected formats and other protected formats. This right has the same value as the Extract right for editable documents.

Forward - The right to forward a protected message. Typically, when this right is granted, the app enables an email recipient to forward a protected message.

Print - The right to print protected content. Typically, when this right is granted, the app enables an email recipient to print a protected message. This right has the same value as the Print right for editable documents.
