FTC Town Hall to Address Digital Rights Management Technologies - Event Takes Place Wednesday, March 25, 2009, in Seattle

Purchasing a DRM encrypted book means I need to keep forever the key information and the purchasing e-mail address which are needed when I replace my e-book reader. I an dependant that the seller will still be in business and still supporting that form of DRM when I need to transfer my library to a replacement reader. In today’s economy, there is no guarantee. I am not happy with DRM. I enjoy downloads from http://www.gutenberg.com/ and http://baen.com/library/ which are DRM free.
