Just say no to DRM

Microsoft has announced that it will be closing its DRM-encumbered ebook store, with the consequence that its customers’ ebooks will “no longer be available to read”.

I don’t buy ebooks with DRM (nor anything else with DRM, for that matter), but apparently lots of people do, and many seem to be content - even proud - to buy ebooks with weak DRM, which they expect to be able to remove.

I don’t do that, and I’d urge anyone that does to reconsider.
