Location-based Digital Rights Management (DRM) refers to a system allowing the owner of an electronic file to specify not only the actions a user is allowed to perform regarding the content, but also restrict the actions to a specified geographical area. A method for retrieving location information is required. One such method is to place wireless accesspoints in areas of interest, requiring a device to be in the vicinity of the correct accesspoint(s) in order to access a file.
