What is Digital Rights Management (DRM)?

Answer

Digital Rights Management, or DRM, determines how digital content can be accessed and how it can be used. With regards to eBooks, it is used by publishers to prevent unauthorized reproduction of their electronic books.

DRM software controls the amount that can be downloaded from an eBook, the loan period, how much can be printed from a particular title, the type(s) of devices that can be used to read an eBook, and whether or not an eBook file can be transferred between devices. DRM is usually set by the eBook provider.
