The Independent Publishers Group has created a new option for its member publishers, allowing them to sell eBooks without Digital Rights Management (DRM).
Here’s more from the release: “IPG-distributed publishers ECW Press, Chicago Review Press, Medallion Press and Triumph Books have already jumped on the opportunity. David Caron, co-publisher of Toronto-based ECW, says ‘We work hard to interest readers in our authors. If DRM sours that relationship, then as a publisher, we must trust that readers will respect authors by only copying e-books for their private use.’”
DRM freedom is in the air. Yesterday Tor/Forge unveiled a DRM-free eBook store. Below, we’ve created a list of a few more publishers offering DRM-free books.
