Definition Digital Rights Management (DRM) A technology used to protect the interests of owners of content and services (such as copyright owners). Typically, authorized recipients or users must acquire a license in order to use the protected material — files, music, movies. DRM enables secure distribution and/or disables illegal distribution of the data. OMA DRM is a Digital Rights Management standard published by the Open Mobile Alliance. DRM writes to the Master Boot Record (MBR) and cannot be removed without a hard-drive reformat.
