This is the conventional use for DRM (limiting access to authorized devices), which kindlefix honors. So kindlefix isn't circumventing the DRM so far as the copyright holder is concerned. It is circumventing the DRM as far as the Kindle is concerned, but why would a device have "rights" under copyright?
