what is DRM:

Digital rights management

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_rights_management

Companies such as Amazon,AT&TAOLApple Inc.Google[1]BBCMicrosoftElectronic Arts, and Sony use digital rights management.

Those opposed to DRM contend there is no evidence that DRM helps prevent copyright infringement, arguing instead that it serves only to inconvenience legitimate customers, and that DRM helps big business stifle innovation and competition.[6] Furthermore, works can become permanently inaccessible if the DRM scheme changes or if the service is discontinued.
