AEM / CQ assets with xmpRights:WebStatement

if a DAM asset has property xmpRights:WebStatement set (usually automatically extracted from the file during the import workflow), CQ redirects to the value in the property, assuming that the property contains the path to a page where the user has to accept a license agreement for the asset.

Note that this only happens when the asset directly is accessed, but not when specific renditions are accessed.

To switch off this behavior, access the system console’s config for the BinaryProviderServlet:


Uncheck the option “Enable Digital Rights Management” and your assets are displayed correctly!
