DRM (Digital Rights Management) All answers
DRM is related to technologies used by publishers and copyright holders to limit the usage of digital media and devices.

Could facilitate the educational use of commercial materials at lower cost. Can restrict forwarding, saving, printing or modification of protected materials.

Generates more work load. Restricts the possibilities to use and modify the protected materials.

The potential and probability of use is on moderate level. Lets spread the results in a normalised diagram (description) to see how answers are related to each others.


We can see, that DRM does not have top priority in first development tasks.
