Add a Tag to DRM-Free Kindle ebooks

In A Campaign to Organize Against DRM on teleread, Stephen Windwalker suggests several tactics including:
Quote:
Kindle Owners

· Search for “DRM-Free” when searching or browsing the Kindle Store. Although it will take a while for Kindle publishers and rightsholders in any significant number to add this descriptor to their e-books, this campaign will seek to influence them to make such titles a significant portion of the Kindle Store’s offerings.

· Use the “tag” feature in the Kindle Store’s search architecture to tag titles as DRM-Free when applicable, and add your DRM-Free tag to titles that already have it.
This is a simple approach to putting teeth in Amazon's claim that they are agnostic about DRM. The difficultly, though, is identifying the DRM-free ebooks - but see Kindle Books From Amazon Without DRM. Note that Stephen suggests "DRM-free" but tags appear to be all lowercase so I used drm-free. Standard searches don't seem to be case sensitive. In addition, voting for an existing drm-free tag helps its prominence although I suggest only doing this if you know for sure it is drm-free.

It would be nice to do something similar for TOPAZ ebooks, but searching for topaz already finds a small number of Kindle books from the publisher Topaz.
