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