1) I bought some DRMed ebooks (.lit). Had an activated (for .lit) computer that would not open them. It said the computer was not activated. So I tried to activate it. Guess what. MS said I couldn't activate it since it was already activated. Never got those damned DRMed books to work.

2) Sony lost (from their listing of my library) books that (I could re-download anytime I wanted to) I lost when my hard drive crashed. Guess what. I never got those books back.

Is that enough instances or should I continue?
