The Fraunhofer Institute in Germany are working on a new type of for e-books called Ziddim, which seeks to prevent piracy changing the text of the story when it is duplicated, creating individualized copies that would allow the owner to track Original eBook.

The examples given by various German bloggers have seen in action the new protection that works with changes described by words such as ‘invisible’ to ‘not visible’ or ‘unhealthy’ to ‘unhealthy’. Other examples given sentences which consisted of changing the order of words.

The idea behind this DRM is that the big publishers understood that any method of protection that blocks the content is useless because you will always find a way to break the blockade, so they are looking for new ways to protect piracy as Ziddim because what they hope is to encourage people not to share e-books by the fear that any copy can be traced to the first user who hacked the book.
