TOR/Forge Unveils DRM-Free eBook Store

The science fiction and fantasy publisher Tor/Forge has revealed plans for a DRM-free eBook store.

In July, the publisher will begin selling Tor, Forge, Starscape, Tor Teen, and Orb digital books without copyright protection through the store. If more publishers follow suit, this could dramatically change the way eBooks are sold and read on digital devices.

Publisher Tom Doherty had this statement: “This isn’t in lieu of the existing online retailers, but in addition to them … We think there’s room for all kinds of retail models in the growing e-book field—and we aim in particular to provide a rich, informative browsing experience to fans and devotees of the kinds of books Tor and Forge have made their reputations publishing.”
