International treaty supports and requires individual countries to legislate for digital rights management. The WIPO Copyright Treaty (Article 2H) contains an article titled 'Electronic Rights Management', which is as follows:

'One of the foundations of future electronic commerce are means to control access to protected works and to combine digital copies of works with information about the author of and/or the owner of rights in such work. The Copyright Treaty obligates the ratifying Member States to provide adequate legal protection and effective legal remedies against the circumvention of such access control or the removing or altering of such rights information.'
