Ira Levin - stepford wives German cover Roboterfrauen

An interesting take on DRM-free E-Books has been suggested by Charles Stross in his blog, comparing the copying among friends to library and second hand use - rightly so, since such a market does not exist for digital books. He also has some numbers on book prices and musings about viable reader devices.

Books by Charles Stross are linked from his page, among them some etexts under a creative commons license, he obviously knows what he is talking about.

The link was coincidentally featured on mobileread.com, a forum for e-book reader enthusiasts etc. (how ironic that even the purportedly literate populace now switched from news to web ;))
