Blackstone Audio to release audio books as DRM-free MP3s

From Cory Doctorow (via Boing Boing)
Quote:
Blackstone now joins with Random House Audio (the audio division of the world's largest publisher, Bertelsmann) in rejecting DRM for its audiobooks and I've heard off-the-record accounts of other major audiobook houses planning to do the same.
Cory goes on to speculate how Audible.com and Amazon will deal with these changes.

Another blow struck against the dreaded DRM, and for the customers right to actually own their own purchases.

More here.

Most if not all audiobook MP3 CD releases from everyone are DRM free offerings, so putting DRM on the download versions never has made sense.

BooksOnBoard is carrying the DRM-free audiobooks now... and they're offering Dennis Miller's Ranting Again for free in the DRM-free MP3 format, which I thought was hilarious - I guess no one wanted to buy it? Here's the link if you want to download it (although I can't imagine wanting to listen to Dennis Miller rant for several hours...): link to Dennis Miller's Ranting Again in DRM-free MP3 audio book

I've been an Audible subscriber since 2001. I can have my audiobooks on 3 registered computers and 3 registered mp3 type devices plus I can burn to CD (don't want to do that). DRM has not been a problem for me.
