If these are library books that were downloaded, I don't think you want to advocate folks stripping the DRM from books they don't own (that would be stealing).
But is this really legal to use kindlefix.py? What you are doing is not removing the DRM, but changing it. So it's no longer the same DRM as it was when you purchased it.

f I was to download a library eBook and strip the DRM, I could then read it without worrying about the PID and if I deleted it after I was done, then that would be legal and if I needed more time, renew it.
