Securing and Authorizing DRMX and DRMZ files

DRMX and DRMZ files require a valid authorization code before they can be read on a specific computer and cannot be read on another computer once the authorization code has been used UNLESS the code allows for multiple use. Files may be protected against: text copying, printing (optional print count may be set) start and end dates, screen grabber protection, watermarking etc. Each DRMX or DRMZ file created has a unique ID, and authorization codes are created by publishers using our AdminApp or DrumlinPublisher software or can be generated by us and issued in blocks to publishers. An initial set of 5 codes are provided for testing newly generated secure files without charge, each of which can be used 5 times. Additional codes must be ordered from theStore
