New DRM Feature May Finally Curb E-Book Piracy

New DRM Feature May Finally Curb E-Book Piracy

Currently, a number of DRM features are in place which attempt to stop e-book piracy on the web. However, most of these measures are inadequate and e-book piracy is a common practice. A new DRM feature, called SiDiM, now aims to ramp up anti-piracy efforts by trying to uniquely identify every e-book.

Ebook: The Run For Profit

Ebook: The Run For Profit

16 July, 2001. A Russian programmer named Dmitry Vitalevich Sklyarov was arrested by FBI for the violation of Digital Millennium Copyright Act. His fault was that he presented a study in DEFCON 2009 conference on how the DRM technologies used then could be hacked within seconds. The DRM technologies which were prawn to hacks included those from Adobe and Microsoft. On 19 July, 2001 Association of American Publishers stated their support for Sklyarov’s arrest. Probably, the publishers thought that piracy could be curbed by suppressing those who point out the flaws of the system. Little did they know that they were digging their own graves.

Requiem App Cracks Apple’s FairPlay DRM For iBooks

Requiem App Cracks Apple’s FairPlay DRM For iBooks

The FairPlay DRM system for music was fairly pushed aside by Apple back in 2009. Few would have thought that it was important any more. However, the fact that a number of iTunes features such as apps, videos and iBooks, still use the copyright protection scheme of FairPlay DRM keeps it relevant to day. DRM for apps and videos has already been cracked and now, finally, DRM for iBooks has also been cracked with the help of an app called Requiem.
