    Digital Rights Management.

    Some users who have recently updated will see these if they've got downloaded music, etc.

    You can stop the DRM service in menu > settings > applications > running services.

    Unless you're rooted and remove the service, it'll restart the next time you reboot your device, but that doesn't mean you'll necessarily continue to see that notification.

  3. You are attempting to access DRM (digital rights management) protected media as you will need correct authentication to view the media, if you check it carefully you will see license required notion.

    I get these from time to time and always in pairs. They seem to happen randomly and with no seeming connection to actual attempts to access media.

    I got two of them today, and all I was doing was transferring some files to my PC...

    I started seeing these today....I heard some rumors that some of the old ringtones were DRM protected (???!?!), but haven't gotten confirmation. I'm guessing that there may be something in SC that may be causing the problem as most of those who are seeing the DRM messages appear to be on one SC variant or another.

    Lol they got quite annoying so I froze them in TB. Haven't had a problem since doing so :D

    I used to get them, but have not since removing any apk's with drm in them. When I de-bloated my EB01, moved them, and about 60 mb to a folder on the sd card.

    I get these errors and i don't keep any music, or other material on my phone/card. The only audio I stream is via the Scanner Radio App and TuneIn Radio.

    I received them as well. I'm rooted with EB01. I noticed I get them after using USB storage on my laptop or turning on EasyTether. I don't have any music on my phone but I do use Zedge. I doubt those would have anything with DRM so not really sure.
