Librarians And Readers Against DRM [Updated]

from the pushing-back dept

HarperCollins recently announced it would limit library e-book checkouts to 26, after which said e-books "bought" and paid for by libraries would self-destruct. Some librarians I know were none too thrilled about this, and asked me to create a graphic to show it:

 

 
What ebout non-librarians who are against DRM? By popular demand, I modified the graphic for everyone:
 
 
These were produced for The Readers Bill of Rights for Digital Books, which encourages everyone to copy the images and spread the word.

 Update: we've added an Authors Against DRM graphic, again by popular demand (from authors).

    I had a family member recently try and work out why she should buy books for her newly gifted Kindle when she can get second-hand books cheap and then sell them again. It's not just "technologists" realising how bad high prices and restrictions are for eBooks, it's anyone who doesn't have more money than sense. She wanted to try and use this gift, but despite it's hefty price tag it still provides less value than second hand books.
