Bookseller Backed by Big Publishers Advocates Abandoning Digital Rights Management

Major book publishers should abandon the use of technology that limits how their copyrighted digital material is used by readers after sale, according to Matteo Berlucchi, CEO of London-based social e-retailer Anobii. In a speech at the Digital Book World Conference in New York, Berlucchi argued that digital rights management technology, or DRM as it is known, prevents more readers from buying e-books and may actually encourage piracy of copyrighted material.
