Excuse me while I bounce.

TOR/Forge publishers, according to this entry from John Scalzi's blog, is going DRM-free with their eBooks by early July.

Even better, they're announcing it in terms of RESPECT FOR THEIR CUSTOMERS.

"Our authors and readers have been asking for this for a long time," said president and publisher Tom Doherty. "They’re a technically sophisticated bunch, and DRM is a constant annoyance to them. It prevents them from using legitimately-purchased e-books in perfectly legal ways, like moving them from one kind of e-reader to another."

What say we all buy a TOR eBook or three on Independence Day, to encourage this behavior? I'm certainly gonna. I welcome title recommendations -- if I can't find anything particular I want to read, I may just pick some TOR title at random.
