Online Publisher Removing Copy Protection From e-Books
Online ebook publisher Lulu has announced it will cease using Digital Rights Management (DRM) for ebooks from 15 January 2013. Readers will be able to make copies of e-books, although copyright will still limit when this is legally permitted. I decided not to use DRM on the books I provide through Lulu, because of the problems the anti-copying technology causes for readers and the fee charged for use of the technology makes up a significant part of the price of a low cost ebook.
