But, hey, you're about the first and only person I've ever seen defend DRM, so have at it. You're the perfect customer for these price-hiking morons.

EDIT: ask the people who bought DRM'd PDF's a couple of years ago who can no longer access those files how they feel about DRM. Oh, and all the ones who, as of yet, can't replace their DRM'd LRX files from Sony. I bet they're really chuffed about DRM.
I dont think you understand how the DRM works. or I dont?

My files are stored on my home PC and backed up on an external drive not on anyone elses serves so thats a non issue.
if i have a computer crash(unlikely I use Macs ) then that wont stop me copying the books onto a reader via drag and drop! as they are already authorised to me.

the computer can be deactivated via the sony software from any computer i log into, so a crashing computer does not cause me to lose '1 of my authorised devices'

So basically non of what you said applies to the DRM system that I am currently happy with and again if I hadnt been happy i wouldnt of bought DRM Ebooks.
