So I either have to find a way to break the DRM for such or buy new copies from Amazon although I already bought them over at Mobipocket. I don't think that's fair myself.
Yes, I meant BAEN and I edited the mistake. Thanks.

It isn't fair that your Mobipocket eBooks might be worthless unless you can strip the DRM. All of the Mobipocket eBooks I bought before I upgraded my computer would all be worthless as the PID is tied to the computer's hardware. Most were bought from Paperback Digital (because they had some really good discount codes) and give that PD is out of business, there's no way to go back and update the DRM. If I did not have the ability to remove the DRM, they'd be wasting hard drive space right now.
