What is an eBook?
Electronic books are book length publications in a digital form. They contain text, images, or both, and are produced on, published through, and are readable on electronic devices and computers. Electronic books can offer an online alternative to a printed book but are just as likely to have been born digital without a printed equivalent. E-Books are usually read on e-book readers but can also be read on personal computers, tablets and some mobile phones.
What is DRM?
Digital rights management (DRM) is a class of access control (exerting control over who can interact with a resource) technologies that are used by hardware manufacturers, publishers, copyright holders and individuals to limit the use of digital content and devices after sale.
