The day has come, #Microsoft will shutdown their #DRM servers which means that all #ebook bought in their store will be gone. Books bought by people under the impression that they will own them like they own their physical books, forever. That's why I only buy DRM-free or watermarked books where I really own the epub files. https://www.wired.com/story/microsoft-ebook-apocalypse-drm #freeCulture #culture #books
@bjoern out of interest, what stores do you buy from?
@sergiusens I like to buy books from bookzilla.de for example, they donate 5% of the price you pay to FSFE. If I don't find the book at bookzilla I try beam-shop.de which sells DRM-free books only.
I expect that it is the same. If google decides at some point in time that they don't want to continue the ebook business they will shutdown their servers and all DRM limited books will be gone.
@bjoern Or you could just, y'know, buy actual books.
