...a bit of both, I think :-) I have been moving the goalposts in the sense that, with your help (and that of the other posters) I have been developing my idea of social DRM here, in real time.

Absolutely not!

I, too, think that now it's time to wrap up. I am very satisfied because (in my view) my idea has survived to the end, and deserves more thinking on my part. Now two final (and crucial) questions remain open:
  1. could it really work?
  2. what will "common" people (not pundits like MobileRead users) think of it?
Your voice has been one of those that helped me most. I thank you heartily for having taken the time, and having made the effort, to follow me through this exploration. It has been a real pleasure. Your insightful observations and your patience in reviewing my (often lenghty) explanations have greatly impressed me.
Have a nice holiday! :-)
