DRM stands for Digital Rights Management – the controls that you (or an ebook vendor) place on your content regarding copying, printing, and sharing. Traditional publishers encode their ebooks with DRM to prevent piracy of the file.
The debate as to whether or not this actually works is heated and ongoing. But as a self-published author, you’ll have to decide if you’re going to put DRM on your ebook files or not.
