Apparently some sleepless geeks are still trying to break the nasty DRM protection that made the Librie fail of becoming a star.

Today I stumbled over the instruction how to download any secure BBeB book from Sony's e-book distributor TimeBookTown. The books will still be encrypted, but it is nice to have a few copies for "closer inspection."

Here is the instruction, originally from the Librie group at Yahoo:
1) go to http://www.timebooktown.jp/Service/
2) every book image is also the name of a book, ex: CBJPPL1B00794001
3) copy paste this string to the end of the following URL:
http://www.timebooktowns.jp/contents/
4) add the .LRX extention to the end of the URL & press enter

Example: http://www.timebooktowns.jp/contents/CBJPPL1B0090900Z.LRX

Let's count the hours until they will notice and pull the plug.

Forgot to mention: There is a white-paper that gives some more insight what the BBeB format is based upon: http://www.y-adagio.com/public/committees/iec_tc100_ags/meetings/15/100ags147.pdf
