OverDrive: â€˜Much more content without DRMâ€™ promised for libraries in â€˜09
By David Rothman
â€œOverDrive is the leader in bringing downloadable MP3 audiobooks to libraries. [It] is leading the library market in bringing all formats of digital media to readersâ€”including much more content without DRM during 2009.â€
I hope that includes copyrighted e-books, too, not just MP3. Like Steve, Iâ€™m keen on writers and publishers getting paid, and there are ways for this to happen without DRM. For now, Iâ€™ll regard the above statement as indicating at least some flexibility.
Meanwhile check out other comments in the LJ piece, headlined Appleâ€™s DRM News said to have little effect on libraries for now.
