ePub eBook

EPUB is a free and open e-book standard by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). Files have the extension .epub.

An EPUB file can optionally contain DRM as an additional layer, but it is not required by the specifications. In addition, the specification does not name any particular DRM system to use, so publishers can choose a DRM scheme to their liking. However, future versions of EPUB (specifically OCF) may specify a format for DRM.
