This article currently has a pro-DRM bias. - Sikon 08:38, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

The MPEG-21 spec has many parts. 3 parts of this are related to licensing and similar concerns (Part 4: IPMP, Part 5: REL, Part 6: RDD). Yet anyone reading this article would presume that these things were practically the only feature of MPEG-21. Propagation of license information is certainly *a* part of MPEG-21, but it is far from the *only* part. Indeed, MPEG-21 at this point in time does not provide a DRM system at all; the IPMP defines mechanisms to allow different (proprietary) DRM systems to interoperate, but does not contain the encryption or other security systems required to actually create and enforce a DRM system.

NPOV dispute [Article is not cleaned, section cannot be specified] - This article reads as propaganda, is uncited, and quotes without referencing sources. Functional information on the specification itself or any aspect other than the Digital Rights Management angle should be added to balance the article. I would also contend that the "hopes" and "aspirations" are relevant to the organization creating it and that the specification itself cannot have hopes/aspirations. These comments might better be moved to the article about the organization as a result. JMJimmy (talk) 18:24, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Also -- the External Links, Further Reading and See Also sections are oriented only to DRM. I'm not an MPEG-21 expert, but unless someone more knowledgeable wants to have a go, I'll try to improve these and make the article more representative of the spec.

MPEG-21 is a vast effort to integrate multimedia experiences integrating what is now video gaming, and avatar concept mediated experiences. Digital rights management is a small subset of this vast, noble, artistic effort. New technologies for audio video presentation and rendering are sub goals. Its quite difficult to be polite when considering the inadiquacy of this submission. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.208.9.121 (talk) 19:58, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

It's interesting that the first sentence of the preceding unsigned comment is a far better overall summary of MPEG-21 than the entire article we are discussing. This is a huge topic. Is there no one competent to rewrite it? Timrprobocom (talk) 23:32, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 02:57, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 3 external links on MPEG-21. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Cheers. —cyberbot IITalk to my owner:Online 03:05, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
