About Drumlin and this website
DRUMLIN stands for "Digital Rights, User Management and LIceNsing". The Drumlin Reader/Publisher product and associated service aims to provide secure PDF document distribution for individuals, corporates and publishing enterprises. It is operated using USA- and UK-based computer server farms in secure datacentres. Our software distribution and DRM services are hosted in the UK.
Our end user software products are provided free of charge. Where users wish to take advantage of services, such as software development, usage of the DRM service, consultancy etc., charges are made as described on theStorepage. Drumlin Security Ltd invests receipts we receive into the continuing provision of the service and the ongoing development and support of the product set. We believe that secure publishing should be simple, cheap and in the best interests of both publishers and end customers. By its very nature electronic publishing with digital rights management (DRM) attracts a range of views on its value and justification, and it must always be seen as primarily a form of copyright protection - a deterrent to copyright abuse. We are very grateful to publishers and end users for their assistance with our project, particularly in suggesting new functionality, identifying flaws and faults, and helping us with multi-language translations!
Drumlin is a family of products and services from Drumlin Security Ltd, an independent publishing business based in the UK whose formation dates back to 2006 when "The Winchelsea Press" was founded.
