What information would be included in watermarking, though? What would be the potential privacy concerns, say if my e-reader were lost or stolen.
And thinking of an e-reader being lost or stolen--wouldn't the person who ended up with it be able to upload all the books with the purchaser's watermark, if so inclined, making the legitimate purchaser look like a pirate?
