Digital Rights Management (DRM)
Digital rights management (DRM) is the use of technology to restrict the use of digital materials which have copyrights. DRM is created to protect the copyright of the holder and prevent unauthorized modification or distribution.
Stealing or copying other’s ideas, content or work is been happening since ages. However, present technology has made piracy exponentially easier. With a few clicks of a mouse, any copyrighted images, videos, and audio files can be shared or downloaded from the Internet — often without proper permission. From Napster to bootlegging and “borrowing” art, this activity is widespread and costly. A recent report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates that online piracy USA has lost 30% of revenue due to piracy.
