Digital rights management (DRM) allows you to set copyright protection for intellectual property such as music, film, ebooks or private documents and helps prevent copying and unauthorised sharing of your own or customers content.

The owner of the copyright can do anything he or she wants with the work he or she owns, except sell it to someone
