What does DRM stand for?

Digital Rights Management

DRM is a handy little acronym that stands for a bunch of systems. These systems have a specific job – they protect the copyright of electronic media. We’re talking about things like music and movies here.

Why do we need DRM? Well, it’s a way of making sure that the people who create and publish music, films, and other electronic media get paid properly for their work. It’s like a digital bouncer, keeping an eye on who’s using what and making sure everyone’s playing fair.

One more important thing about DRM – it helps to stop the illegal sharing of copyrighted stuff. So, it’s not just about making sure creators and publishers get their due. It’s also about keeping things legal and above board on the internet.
