|Online Shopping (E-Commerce)|
Electronic Commerce is the buying and selling of goods over the Internet.
E-commerce will never completely replace traditional shops mainly because not everyone has the equipment to access the Internet and some people like to actually try out or inspect items in person in a shop before they buy them (e.g. clothes).
|Digital Rights Management (DRM)|
Some artists who produce copyright material like music or films add DRM to their work. Whilst this stops the customers from breaking copyright laws by copying it too many times, it can make it hard for them to play it back (e.g. it might not play on devices made by rival manufacturers).
