We hates the DRMses, my preciousss

Digital rights management (DRM): it’s used by all the big publishers to limit e-book piracy … and we all hates it. You hates it, I hates it. DRM annoys customers, prevents real ownership, makes honest lending nearly impossible, locks e-books to one kind of reader … just yuck. We hates DRM! My e-books are “low DRM.” I do protect my (preciouss) books a little — but a lot less than big publishers do. In particular, it’s easy and fine to lend my e-books!
