AppAdvice has recently mentioned that a popular DRM stripper tool called Requiem has been updated to version 3.3. Now why do you care that Requiem was updated to version 3.3? Well, in this new version comes support for decrypting e-books purchased from the iBookstore. This is a significant new feature to the Requiem application that has already had a long history of being able to remove the DRM restrictions from music and videos purchased from the iTunes Store.
With Requiem being able to decrypt Apple’s own DRM protection, called FairPlay, on iBooks it means Apple’s e-books are no longer only restricted to being read on iOS devices. Due to this fact we are sure to see Apple release an update to their DRM protection method in the near future like they have in the past to counter Requiem’s decryption methods on songs/videos.
It will be interesting to see whether or not this will effect the sale of iBooks significantly or not in the near future. What are your thoughts on Apple’s FairPlay DRM protection being cracked? Share your responses in the comments section below…
and works fine!!
