DRM? What’s that?
DRM stands for Digital Rights Management. DRM is an access control technology used to restrict usage of proprietary hardware and copyrighted works. DRM technologies enforce restrictions and control the use, modification, and distribution of copyrighted works such as software and multimedia content. Guess which company loves DRM a whole lot? Well, Apple!
Apple has its own DRM technology called FairPlay. Based on technology created by company Veridisc, FairPlay is built into the QuickTime multimedia software and used by iPhone, iPod, iPad, Apple TV, iTunes, iTunes Store, and App Store. Apps downloaded from iTunes store and Apple Music subscription songs saved for offline listening are encrypted with FairPlay, which digitally encrypts AAC audio files and prevents users from playing these on unauthorized computers/non-Apple devices.
