That's unfortunate. I'm guessing
that's like your UK TV licensing situation. I've heard stories
about the "TV Police" going around the neighborhoods looking for
unlicensed TV's. I guess on your end, you could implement
DRM/DAB in SDRC, but you'd probably have to show a licensing fee
is paid by the end user, which is something that you probably
don't want to get into and administer. However, you could still
offer your FREE version of SDRC (with the ubiquitous donation
keep your pup fed), and a PAID version that has that DRM/DAB
function enabled, again, mostly for your UK/EU folks.

a software provider the problem with DRM is codec
licencing, the entity providing the software is responsible
for the licence fee, not the end user. An example: ELAD ship
a DRM solution and pay a licence for each unit. Same problem
with DAB, if you ship or promote a DAB solution you are
responsible for the licence.

I came across a post on The SWLing Post (https://swling.com/blog/2021/09/short-recording-of-bbc-world-service-in-drm/)
that the author shows using another SDR reciever to listen to
BBC DRM. The SDR image shows the use of a "Dream 2.2.1" DRM
plug-in. This can be found on SourceForge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/drm/).
DRM isn't used in the US, but it is in Europe. I know you've
danced around this for a long time. I also don't know if this
is much use to you in SDRC, but I thought I'd pass this along.
The reviews are mixed to "it works" to "it doesn't work".
