  21. 21. What does DRM mean, and how will it affect my NOOK Book ownership?Digital Rights Management (DRM) is used to ensure that a specific copy of aNOOK Book is owned by one owner, and is not just given away. This ensuresthat copyright laws are respected and that authors and publishers are fairlycompensated.DRM means that when you buy a NOOK Book from your NOOK or fromBN.com, you own that copy forever, unless you delete it from your onlinedigital library. You can read it, but others cannot read it.Because the NOOK Book is in your online digital library, you can open yourcopy from any of the supported NOOK app platforms registered underthe same B&N account.You can also lend a NOOK Book one time for up to 14 days. When you lendthe NOOK Book, you also lend your digital rights, so you cannot read thebook while the lending offer is pending and while the book is on loan.
