ForumPass Defense is now a service similar to FIS, where you don’t see an "Open Application" link from your MAG Dashboard. You must be subscribed to FP Defense in order to access Digital Rights Management Libraries. In order to access your DRM library, you will need to go to your ForumPass 7 - US site first, and then access your ForumPass Defense site where Digital Rights Management is enabled.
