For questions about DRM, aka Digital (Rights/Restrictions) Management, and its applications to projects.

DRM, aka Digital Rights Management or Digital Restrictions Management (though more commonly the former), is a class of copy protection technologies used by software and hardware developers with the intent to control the use of digital content after sale. (Wikipedia)

DRM in open source is generally viewed as a bad thing, because using it denies the Free Software Definition (aka you must not restrict how the licensed product can be used).
