Drm Lock

Before going further into the article, we feel you should know something about DRM. DRM stands for Digital Right Management is a set of access control codes that does the work of restricting users from accessing proprietary hardware and copyrighted content. DRM basically allows the developers or publishers of the content to add their own policies regarding the access of the content. They get the control of adding restrictions to who can copy and view their content.

However, the point of discussion is breaking or removing DRM protection. When you access an instant music/video, you receive only limited rights regarding the file, which constitutes only a few of the entire bundle of rights that compromise full ownership. You can view it but can’t copy and distribute. Plainly, removing DRM for personal use is okay while doing it for commercial intention is illegal.

  1. Hello Jim,

    I think that may e due to the holiday season. But if you are not satisfied you can always tell them to refund the amount.

  2. A couple of weeks ago (Dec. 12, 2019) I purchased DRmare M4V converter for the Mac. I cannot get it to work. I have contacted the company three times (twice to tech support and once to sales) and have received absolutely no response. Their web site promises technical support and a refund if they are not able to get the software to work within 30 days of purchase. I hope that is the case, but so far I am very skeptical.
