If your institution has created online content to sell, or paid for work from authors to distribute, you want to make sure that the authors are paid for the content you offer online. You don’t want hackers getting around your copyright protections, or see customers or clients figuring out how to share these eBooks for free, with their friends, or maybe even selling them to someone else.
Datalogics offers a strong encryption protection with READynamic. But many vendors provide Digital Rights Management (DRM) utilities as a means to provide copyright protection for digital content. DRM technology is an industry standard that is designed to protect electronic content, such as eBooks, from unauthorized distribution.
You might work in an environment where you don’t need to provide Digital Rights Management for your READynamic content. Perhaps you are using READynamic to manage internal training materials for your business. Your HR or Training department creates these materials; you have no plan to sell or distribute the eBooks outside of your company, and you don’t use any other content from other sources that is copyrighted or otherwise restricted. Also, eBooks with content that is in the public domain, such as novels from the early 20th century or earlier, where the copyright has expired, do not need to be encrypted. These titles can be distributed freely.
