Digital rights management (DRM)

DRM protects your book from illegal copying. It works differently depending on your book’s file type:

  • EPUB files (.epub): DRM applies to images and book content. The book directory, file structure, audio, and video content are not included.
  • Multi-Touch Book files (.ibooks): DRM applies to all media and book content, but it’s not applied to the book structure, small thumbnails, and media content within an HTML widget.

You can adjust your book's DRM settings in My Books in iTunes Connect. Learn more about DRM settings.
