DRM is an acronym for Digital Rights Management, a class of controversial technologies used to restrict the free use and transfer of digital content such as making backup copies of CDs or DVDs, using copyrighted materials. Until 2009, Apple’s iTunes implemented a DRM schemes built in all of its media downloads (audio files, movies, videos) to limit the number of devices they may be played on.
While iTunes sells a wealth of videos, their DRM-protected M4V format prevents the users from transferring or burning the files, only permitting you watch them on Apple’s devices only.

Security issues, fair use issues, and issues of creative expression are all at the forefront of the DRM battle. Advocates argue that the use of digital technology should be unfettered, so this article will be based on fair use clause which allows for unhampered use in certain situations.
