Now there are a bunch more people to get pissed off at DRM and crack it and upload stuff though.
I'm all for blaming big corps when they're at fault but Apple and the publishers don't control international rights. Authors, through their agents, hold auctions for international translation, print and digital rights. Worldwide eBook distribution rights would require an overhaul of the entire author royalty/contract process.
