Protecting Intellectual Property with Document DRM

Digital rights management, or DRM, is the process of ensuring documents copy protection is enforced on Intellectual Property that you own. In simple terms, it prevents people from stealing or misusing any Intellectual Property that is in document form. Such documents can include traditional paper documents or reports, but more commonly it is in the form of digital documents. Digital documents include many forms of content, including e-books, website HTML code, PDF files, flash files, etc. Digital documents can easily be copied, resent, edited, and screen captured without such protection. If you own any Intellectual Property, you should use some form of document DRM software to protect your content. 

As with any document copy protection, the document DRM software should be reliable, secure, and affordable. It should allow you the flexibility to share documents easily with authorized users. You should be able to specify how many times the document can be viewed, saved, printed, forwarded, or copied.  It should prevent unauthorized editing of your file and also placement of watermarks if necessary. Most importantly, DRM software must be easy for you to use and transparent to your end users. It should be designed so that hackers cannot easily break into the code and bypass the security measures.

Document copy protection, and especially document DRM protection is a vital tool for managing your Intellectual Property. It is a critical element for any well-managed business operation.  Just as you wouldn’t want a thief stealing property from your home, you wouldn’t want digital thieves stealing valuable content off your website.  Use DRM protection, and you can prevent that from happening.
