What is DRM

Depending on where you publish your ebook you will need to determine whether or not you want to protect it with DRM. DRM stands for Digital Rights Management and it is a form of copy protection that attempts to prevent the unauthorized use and copying of ebooks.

The only advantage of DRM is that it makes it harder for people to download unauthorized copies of your cookbook. However, this comes at the cost of some customer trust, and also makes it harder for legitimate purchasers of your cookbook to share it among their own devices. In general, copy protector only stops legitimate readers from using your book as they want to, most pirates and other copyright infringers can easily get around DRM and other copy protection.

I do not use DRM on any of the latest cookbooks that I have published. I'd rather lose a few book sales by someone sharing a book than prevent a paying custom from using my book how they want to. I also believe that people who read an illegal copy of my book may become fans, follow my website, and maybe purchase a different book of mine in the future.

You can read much more about DRM from its Wikipedia page.
