Digital Rights Management:
DRM for short, Digital Rights Management is a solution that regulates and controls the access to digital content files, successfully restricting copying, sharing and printing of digital content. Think of it as an integrated lock, the unique key to which is the only access! It is one of the most salient and also the most underused facet of technology
A Cygnet Infotech venture, e-Shabda is an effort to bring the benefits of digital publishing to Indian language publishers and authors. While the global publishing industry is making the most of e-publishing, authors and publishers of regional languages do not have a set, stronger way of reaching out to the massive online audience of Indian readers. Through e-Shabda, we aim to:
- Empower authors and publishers to reach a wider audience
- Encourage the youth to read books and magazines in regional languages
- Leverage the digital revolution to popularize regional languages books
To achieve these goals, we offer end-to-end e-publishing solutions: right from converting a book to the proper eBook format to distributing, marketing and securing it, we take care of all the stages in the cycle. To further these efforts, we have set up Indian-Ebooks.com, an open platform where all associated publishers can sell books, and from where any reader can purchase books.
By using the internationally accepted standard UNICODE fonts and creating eBooks in the standard formats, we ensure that readers can read Indian language books on most e-readers, mobile phones and tablets.
