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).

    Who I am

    Oh, and by the way I did say the thing about comparing the Democrats to the mafia, but in context it was a joke. We all had a good laugh. I regret saying it to a reporter though.

    I was in college and had never talked to the media before, so I wasn't really thinking about what I was saying. Sorry if it offends anyone.

    A very angry man on the street who was a democrat did tell me he was going to put me on a blacklist that year though, and he seemed serious enough. Hopefully he forgot after he walked away ;)
