Cory Doctorow Pushes DRM Free Message In Blog Post

Author/blogger Cory Doctorow blogged about winning the DRM battle against on BoingBoing yesterday.

The blog stems from Doctrow’s column this month in Publisher’s Weekly, in which is talks about how he convinced Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo to sell his eBooks unencumbered by DRM coding, so that consumers can transfer the files that they purchase across device.

Here is a bit from the BoingBoing blog: “Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Kobo were all happy to carry my books without DRM, and on terms that gave you the same rights you got when buying paper editions. Sony and Apple refused to carry my books without DRM — even though my publisher and I both asked them to. The upshot is that you can now buy electronic editions of my books in the Kindle, Nook and Kobo stores in DRM-free, EULA-free editions!”
