  10. Join us and the Free Software Foundation in the fight against DRM!
  11. Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) is any technology that is built
  12. into an electronic product or service with the aim of limiting its
  13. use. It is designed to prevent customers from using digital
  14. technology in ways that do not correspond to the business agenda of a
  15. content provider or device manufacturer.

  27. Managements</a> often restricts individuals from doing things that
  28. are perfectly legal, so we might not be able to put together a mix of
  29. music files we bought legally, or to lend an e-book to a friend. Even
  30. backups can be restricted. Restrictions management technology removes
  31. basic rights and freedoms in the digital world. All DRM systems have
  32. one thing in common: They give businesses control over things that
  33. we, the owners, should be in control of. For example, businesses
  34. decide how often we can play the movies we paid for and what kind of
  35. files we can read on our e-book reader.

  38. Free Software is software that puts the user in control of their own
  39. devices. In contrast, DRM Digital Restrictions Management is
  40. technology to put the user under control of a third party: these two
  41. goals are fundamentally incompatible.
