About DRM RestrictionsDigital Restrictions Management is technology that controls what you can do with the digital media and devices you own. When a program doesn't let you share a song, read an e-Book on another device, or play a game without an internet connection, you are being restricted by DRM. In other words, DRM creates a damaged good. It prevents you from doing what would normally be possible if it wasn't there, and this is creating a dangerous situation for freedom, privacy and censorship.
According to defectivebydesign.org, DRM (Digital Rights Management) are about restrictions, not rights. Apparently, users try to get rid of DRM so they can gain full advantage over their purchased content. These are the most important reasons (or restrictions) that may force you to use DRM-Remval tools:
- You are restricted to use the purchased content only on a certain device.
- You are restricted to read the purchased e-Book only on a certain e-Reader.
- DRM gives media and technology companies the ultimate control over every aspect of what people can do with their media.
- If a company decide to stop running the Media or e-Book we would lose what we have paid for.
- DRM attempts to make every possible use of digital goods something that must be granted permission for.
- DRM creates a direction for only few companies to take over the distribution of content in their hands.
- Some e-Book readers like to write notes inside their books but DRM prevents it.
Any other use of DRM-Removal tools may not be classified as legal, and is the full responsibility of the person(s) utilising the program for the unapproved practice.
DRM-Removal ConcernsRegardless of restrictions, normally DRM-Removal is legitimate assuming that you actually realize your obligations towards the DRM-Free content, it's all about your intention considering fair use otherwise it is unarguably illegal to perform that task.
In fact, it's only legal as long as you are the original owner of the content. Also, your intention to remove DRM must be for gaining the right of ownership over it (including any other reason written above) and NOT for sharing or redistributing it.
