What is DRM?
DRM, Digital Rights Management, is all about copyright protection. DRM is a scheme that controls access to copyrighted material using technological means. It may refer to the usage of proprietary software, hardware, or any type of content: music tracks, video files, ebooks, games, DVD movies, emails, documents, etc.
DRM has been giving consumers trouble since its inception, when it was intended as a means to protect digital media from piracy. DRM has taken many forms over the years, from CD keys and digital watermarks to proprietary file types, but the end result is the same: You can’t copy the stuff you buy or play it on anything other than the intended device. For example, a song can be listened to, but not copied or shared; an ebook can be viewed on a certain type of device; an email can’t be forwarded. In other words, DRM creates a defective product, which completely satisfies the copyright protection needs. Apple adds a DRM layer to its streaming music collection. It keeps you from getting a subscription, downloading a ton of music in month one, then canceling the subscription. As we see it, that’s a problem.
