Then again, I don't agree with the OP: my experience is that ebooks are generally a considerable savings over available print copies and DRM seems to work just fine (I haven't found it to be defective).
I think what the OP means is that it prevents you from reading the book on any reader you wish. I have that problem with Mobipocket books. Amazon owns the company, but in order to read books I already own on my Kindle I have to either find out how to strip the DRM from them or buy Kindle versions of the same book. Why should someone have to buy the same book twice from the same seller?
