Part 1. What Does DRM Technology MeanDigital Rights Management (short for DRM) is the access control technologies dedicated to restrict the usage of digital content. Due to the encryption technologies, content providers can grant protection over their own digital media files and control the ways that customers use these sold files. Content providers claim that they only use DRM technologies to protect their own copyright, but actually DRM is able to prevent customers from possessing, duplicating and sharing digital material and works or converting them to other formats.
With the increasing usage of DRM technologies, it was little by little that we are controlled by many commercial companies, like Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, etc. when exploring and enjoying digital content that we legally bought. We make some conclusions about reasons why people urgently would like to remove DRM from the media files through our experience.
1. We don't really possess these digital material and works even if we paid for it.
2. We are limited to playback these downloaded media files on the particular devices.
3. We might not have the ability to share and duplicate audios and videos as we like.
4. We are totally controlled by commercial media companies that infringe our rights in enjoying something we legally purchased.
