11.  The DMP calls for contributions from its members and interested organisations on the different areas of its WP for submission at GA02, in particular

  1.  Traditional Rights and Usages (TRU) of media users, Digital Media Business Models (DMBM) and Requirements (RQ). Contributions on this area are particularly urgent as proper RQs are key to the successful development of DMP TSs and RPs.

  2. Identification of Interoperable End-user Devices (IED) with corresponding RQs, that are candidate for short-term DMP TSs (IED-s). Contributions should include identification of DMBMs urgently needing support in the market place, to be used not only as a top-down crosscheck for the existing bottom-up process but also to develop and publish TSs for IEDs on an accelerated basis. It is reminded that the DMP WP foresees issuing a Call for Proposal (CfP) on this topic at GA03.

  3. Studies of Deployment of Broadband Access (DBA). In particular the DMP solicits contributions addressing how the availability of DMP IDP and IED TSs will influence the prospects of broadband deployment and development of broadband services, and impact the set of policy and economic elements listed in DMP0017. It is reminded that the DMP WP foresees issuing a Call for Contributions (CfC) on this topic at GA03.

  4. Identification of current difficulties in the use of digital media standards and proposals to overcome the difficulties. It is reminded that the DMP WP foresees issuing a CfC on this topic at GA03.
