    How does all this tie up with 2013?

    • Hi Jon,

      Eventually I do hope to cover this, but the upshot is that it’s mostly still the same. I intended for these posts to be foundational rather than exclusively about 2010. You may also want to check Antonio Maio’s post about some changes over here.
      Cheers,

    Hello, great posts,
    I was testing ad rms with sharepoint 2013, and it seems that after a user downloads protected file form list to hard drive, he is able to get use license even though acess rights were removed to the library from which the file was downloaded… Is the RMS when issuing license verifies user’s access rights to the sharepoint list, does it work only when users is disabled in AD?

    • Hiya. When you say downloaded, do you mean saved? If you allow a user to save a copy (or export), that file no longer resides in the SharePoint list. So if that is what you mean, the behaviour is expected. If you open the file, it is still managed by SharePoint and the rights are defined in that list. This is how it works in 2010 anyway, and why I suggest that you may want to disable the save/export option. It effectively allows a user to opt out of the Information Management policies you’re trying to enforce.
