The simple fact that companies which sell DRM-protected eBooks have been a commercial success.

Fact: All major DRM has been broken.
Nonsense. The leading DRM format for eBooks is MobiPocket, and that certainly hasn't been broken.

History has shown that properietary/closed formats eventually die.
Most digital formats you buy are "proprietory, closed formats". Take, for example, the "Red Book" standard which controls how music CDs are formatted. That is a proprietory, closed format owned by Philips. You have to buy a licence from Philips in order to produce audio CDs. Are you going to claim that CDs have been a failure?
