Digital Rights Management (DRM)

What is a Digital Rights Management (DRM) System? In the library context, Adobe DRM can enforce the following elements:

  1. Restrict the lending period. When your e-book is due, the DRM component discontinues access and will automatically “return” it to the digital Library. The files remain physically on the your computer or device, but content is inaccessible and need to be deleted.
  2. Protect the copyrighted materials by preventing the user from copying, printing or altering the content.
  3. Restrict the number of reading devices the book can be shared with.
