Many DRM(Digital Rights Management) systems have provided solutions to protect and manage only rights of media distributor against purchasers in B2C environment. However, they hardly consider the rights of the other distribution subjects in content value chain such as creator, rights holder, and creation provider. This paper suggests Distribution Information Management System (DIMS) for protecting the rights of these distribution subjects, which supports environment to make a contact and to enforce the contract. Especially, this paper suggests new eXtensible enforcement Markup Language (XeML) that defines enforceable items of the contract.
