No need for drm, when you don't actually a copy of the book on your pc that you can back up.

I knew there would be a catch!

It implies that Pottermore will be storing your credit card information on its servers so that you may be periodically charged in order to continue your Harry Potter experience.

You can save books from Google eBooks on your computer. How else would one get them onto a Sony Reader?

No, it means that when Eric Schmidt calls your name the tattoo on your arm will itch and burn.


Obviously you should keep your credit card locked in a safe and never let anyone know the magic number, especially people who might use it to sell you something!

Maybe they are talking about number of new iRiver readers sold.

This is probably based on Adobe mobile reader device licensees (Digital Editions Supported Devices), and if so it is actually an undercount - ignoring DRM-free only devices. It certainly includes readers that are no longer sold. Sony has half a dozen for example.

Well, think of different models as separate ones. Got 9 that I can think of from Sony alone.

More than 80. Beside the 50-60 models that I read about here, I'm sure there are plenty in Asia that I've never heard of.
