Last year Tor Books, an imprint of Macmillian that publishes science fiction and fantasy novels decided to remove the copyright protection DRM software from its eBooks.
The move has been a hugely positive one for us, it’s helped establish Tor and Tor UK as an imprint that listens to its readers and authors when they approach us with a mutual concern—and for that we’ve gained an amazing amount of support and loyalty from the community. And a year on we’re still pleased that we took this step with the imprint and continue to publish all of Tor UK’s titles DRM-free.
The company made the decision to drop DRM after readers expressed frustration with the software. (Via Ars Technica)
