Our Policy & Opinion Regarding DRM


Digital Rights Management (DRM)

  • Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a form of copy protection developed for digital materials.
  • It is commonly found on eBooks, music files, and movie files.
  • FitzMaurice Publishers has elected to use DRM on all of its electronic books.
  • If you find or have a copy of one of our books without DRM, then you can be sure it is a pirated and illegal copy.

Protect the Integrity of the Work

  • The reason we have chosen to support and use DRM is mainly for the integrity of the work.
  • Since what we publish are psychology and philosophy, then changes in the text by readers must be avoided.
  • While minor changes may not affect the meaning in a romance novel, minor changes in wording can greatly affect the meaning in books on psychology and philosophy.
  • Without DRM, it is likely that changes will occur in the material whether by accident or on purpose.

Remember This Simple Experiment

  • You may have participated in a simple experiment when in grade school.
  • The student in the back corner of the classroom was given a simple one-sentence message on a piece of paper.
  • He or she was then to whisper this message to the person next to them.
  • Each classmate was to continue the process until it stopped with the last student in the front of the classroom.
  • The last student was then to report the message to the whole class.
  • As you may remember, the final message had no resemblance to the first message.
  • This happened in spite of the teacher’s directions to be sure and repeat the message without any changes.
