A method for clearing and delivering digital rights management (DRM) licenses to websites and IP connected devices is disclosed. The method utilizes one or more Web services to receive one or more license requests from devices connected by IP Networks and generates, clears and delivers licenses containing license keys and rights or rules that govern the use of one or more digital media file or live broadcast. Use of a Web service unifies numerous complex steps and insures proper interface between otherwise potentially incompatible software and hardware modules which may be distributed at various remote locations. License clearing and delivery may then be performed seamlessly and transparently to a virtually unlimited number of devices connected by IP Networks.
