Intellectual property protection has ushered in an era of technological solutions that attempt to prevent asserted rights infringement. Digital Rights Management (DRM) can be considered a response to legal requirements which criminalize the production and dissemination of technology that allows individuals to circumvent technical copy-restriction methods. Specifically, as a preventive control, DRM software usually manages the downloading of sound files, movies, and other copyrighted materials through diverse security features.
