DRM stands for Digital Rights Management which is used by media publishers (including book, music and film) to restrict unauthorized copying, conversion and distribution of their content. In digital publishing, DRM is used in some ebooks to prevent the work from being copied, distributed or printed as in the case of the T&F DRM protected ebooks. Currently, about 25% of the T&F eBooks purchased by NUS Libraries have DRM protection. Users need to use the FileOpen plug-in for the Adobe Reader to read the protected document.  T& F is working on reducing this number.
