E-books For Everyone?


26 March 2009

Click here for a story from NPR’s “All Things Considered” about Digital Rights Management (DRM) issues in the e-book industry.  

The question is whether DRM protects authors and publishers, or if it limits potential audiences. In the music industry, some argue, laxness about DRM is what crippled record companies and kept artists from making money.  Others argue that the more widely and easily available an artist’s work, the more likely the word will spread and sales will increase.

Everything topsy turvy, the commerce of books in flux.
