Requiem App Removes Fairplay DRM From iBooks

Posted Feb 25, 2012

The Apple iBooks Digital Rights Management (DRM) copy protection has been cracked by the first time. The The Requiem app has been known for being able to remove Fairplay DRM from music and videos sold via iTunes. Now it has the ability to remove the DRM from iBooks e-books. This allows iBooks to be downloaded from iTunes and can be used on other devices besides the iBooks app on iOS devices. Most likely Apple will respond by adding patches to the hack through iTunes updates. [The Verge]
