Providing content is still the most important element to a publisher’s lifeblood. While the method or medium of providing that content has evolved and is ever evolving, the task of delivering content to readers remains in place. As we address the many ways in which to deliver content, employing a system that provides digital rights management becomes a must have in order to protect our companies, our authors, and our users.
