I agree with the potential consequences of false positives through watermarking. When I was new to understanding encrypted drm, however, I was horrified and offended at the very idea, that I bought a book at "real book" prices, and (prior to discovering the tools) could NOT manipulate the book and/or read it on the program (calibre and or whatever reader I was using) of my own choosing.

I'm less offended at books with encrypted DRM when the price is free or next to nothing, yet somehow don't feel ripped off buying a book for as much as $10 that is sold without encrypted DRM.

All of the downfalls with watermarking have a smaller chance of happening to me, but would be equally as horrifying if they did. So I may "change" my answer somewhat to "both are equally bad".

My main answer is I just want to have incentive to buy stuff if I could be guaranteed to be left the heck alone after the transaction is made.
