Another futile, stupid, attempt to apply Hard copy book paradigm to ebooks. It's bound to be loaded with DRM and hugely problematic to many readers, while others will simply break the DRM and have the book at a cheaper price than they could have bought it otherwise.

Yes I recently purchased an ebook for $70. I could not believe the cr@ppy DRM installed which made it next to impossible to read on linux and on a mac restricted me to printing only 10 pages (out of 600 roughly). Needless to say the anger motivated me and now I can read it as a regular pdf on Linux. DRM is a dead duck.
