Is this the new "feature" in Office 2003???

The Windows Rights Management (RM) client is required for your computer to run applications that provide functionality based on RM technologies. Installing this client allows RM-aware applications to work with Windows Rights Management Services (RMS) to provide licenses for publishing and consuming RM-protected information. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer

No we don't need to be afraid.

If its what i think it is its part of Office 2003 and it allows you do create Office docs which can only be opened by selected people.

This is an XP download in my case. I assume this will enable my PC to use RMS so that if i am on a "list" i can open said document.

Not paranoid. Just wondered if it was linked to the features in Office 2003.

I guess so....
