Nous avons conscience que ces manipulations sont un peu pénibles, cependant, vous ne devriez avoir à les effectuer qu’une seule fois, le plus dur est derrière vous ! Nous nous efforçons de convaincre les éditeurs de préférer le Watermark aux DRM, qui est une protection numérique beaucoup plus légère, voici quelques uns qui le font n’hésitez pas à aller jeter un œil :-)
