Tech Term Tuesday: DRM

6 03 2007

Every Tuesday, Infoblog will attempt to explain or define a term that is being used today. Today’s term is DRM.


DRM (or Digital Rights Management) is a broad term used to describe a number of techniques for restricting the free use and transfer of digital content. Typically, a DRM system protects intellectual property by either encrypting the data so that it can only be accessed by authorized users or marking the content with a digital watermark or similar method so that the content can not be freely distributed. Supporters of DRM argue that without a means of encrypting digital content so that only the original purchasers have access, pirating will continue unabated.
