September 9, 2016Austin, TX USA — BuyDRM, Inc., a prominent innovator in Digital Rights Management (“DRM”) and Content Security Services, has named Ron Baker as Chairman of the Board. This board expansion exemplifies the continued growth enjoyed this year by the Austin-based company.

Mr. Baker is a veteran technology executive with 25 years of experience in the industry successfully leading five different companies as CEO, CFO or Chairman.
