Digital Rights Management or DRM is a system that controls and limits the access to any digital copyrighted content you’ve purchased. DRM policies help the copyright owners to protect their intellectual property and stave off illegal distribution. What’s why such giant companies as Apple, Sony, BBC, Microsoft and Amazon prefer to use DRM. So purchasing music on Amazon or iStore you will face some restrictions in use. DRM digital locks can prevent you from copying, converting or transferring your audio files to different portable devices. As an example Apple offers you to buy the song that can be played back only on one authorized computer. To listen to this music composition on your iPod you will need to acquire one more license. In this article you will find the ways to overcome DRM protection of your purchased music preserving the digital rights management copyright agreement.
