They need to realise that they can make *more* money off an open ebook standard - that's the critical thing. And given the history of the music and movie industries in this area, I think we have little cause for optimism. Both those industries have responded to every suggestion of openness by investing in ever-more restrictive technologies (and, of course, litigation)
