eBooks, Amazon and the end of DRM

Available languages:

I love Charles Stross‚ work in general, particularly his crazy books about the singularity. However, I recommend to follow his blog, if you are into literature, tech and the occasional rant about modern politics.
Kindle Book
His recent post was about Amazon, their disruption of the book business and the only chance he sees the big publishing houses have in staying in business for the long term: the end of DRM on their books. I think he is right in his view on his very own industry. …an industry he thinks is developing towards a monopoly AND monopsony at the same time (look at the state of the industry in the USA). Anyway if he turns out to be right, I look forward to „own“ the electronic books I „bought“ for my kindle again and maybe even switch the platforms from time to time.
