International Day against DRM


On May 6th, the Day Against DRM is celebrated around the world.

What is DRM?

Digital Rights Management (DRM) is used to encrypt various multimedia products (including audio, video, eBooks, etc.) DRM is intended to restrict the unauthorised usage of a product. Although the DRM is designed for protecting the copyright holders, some people think this is “defective by design”. Defective by Design is an anti-DRM initiative by the Free Software Foundation (the authors of GNU project).

Support the Defective by Design Initiative

On May  6th, Packt Publishing performs an exciting action that will last for 24 hours only. You are able to explore the full range of DRM-free content at packtpub.com and purchase it for $10. All 2000+ eBooks and Videos will be $10 for 24 hours. Here is the link: bit.ly/1q6bpha
