Marlin Developer Community Releases Open DRM Tool

The Marlin Developer Community, a DRM technology company that is based on the idea of open DRM, has launched a new tool for publishers to protect eBooks.

The idea behind is to give publishers a tool that lets them protect works across platforms and doesn’t lock them in to any one format. The tool works with ePUB, and it is not subject to proprietary copyright protection technologies.

Talal Shamoon, chairman of the MDC stated: “Books are the cornerstone of enduring culture, and using proprietary security technology to lock consumers into walled gardens is untoward. While it is every person’s right to access written works, it is also important to protect authors’ rights and ensure the integrity of distribution networks; Marlin DRM elegantly balances these requirements.”
