The content is made available live for reading conventionally. There
is no requirement to make it available in an unconventional way, which
is as true catering for live mirrors as it is for dealing with
requests for clay tablets on demand.

DRMs are not relevant here; a DRM is an impediment built into and
inseperable from the information you pass out, not simply a decision
to choose who you do or do not pass it out to.
