I have a nook, if there is a book I can only find at Amazon, I have no problem buying it, stripping the drm and loading it to my nook. I'm not sharing it, I didn't steal it, the publisher gets their money, the author gets their royalty and I can read the book that I legally purchased.
I guess it might open the door to let people sell software to strip DRMs or take it a step further in eliminating DRMs.
Either way, I'll continue doing what I'm doing and won't lose sleep over it.
Yes it does matter. I won't strip a DRm from a book because I believe it to be illegal. If it is legal then I can check out library books on my Kindle by stripping the DRM.
