There’s been some controversy recently about ebooks protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) and what that allows the retailer to do with an ebook you thought you owned.*
It’s not very apparent unless you search quite hard on the Amazon website, but the Irish History Compressed ebook is DRM-free. While we hope people won’t pirate it, I personally would prefer to buy ebooks without these arbitrary, silly and often ineffective restrictions. So, we’re leading by example (if that doesn’t sound too grand…)
This will of course also apply to the other, non-Kindle ebook formats that are due for release sometime later this year.
