I was not aware about UChicago until this topic. I was offered a free ebook. I read this email at work. I decided to do what I usually do: download the ebook, copy it to my USB stick, have a look at it at home and probably move it to my archive if I decide it is worth keeping and reading in future. However, I could not do it anymore. DRM has interfered. It has disrupted MY routine. I have lost control of what I can&cannot do with a file. Thus the file went to the recycling bin.
