Sourcebooks Experimenting with DRM-Free e-Books

Quote:
By Claire Kirch -- Publishers Weekly, 7/9/2009 2:34:00 PM

Sourcebooks has begun collaborating with Smashwords--a one-year-old company that produces and sells DRM-free versions of e-books--to make 14 mass market romance novels released under the company’s Casablanca imprint available for sale though Smashwords. The e-books will be priced at $6.99 and will be available in nine formats, including PDF, Kindle, and Epub. This is the first time that Sourcebooks is making DRM-free digital versions of their books available to consumers. “The publishing business is changing daily,” Sourcebooks publisher Dominique Raccah said in a statement. “While partnering with Smashwords does not mean we endorse DRM-free across the board, it does mean that we’re open to exploring different possibilities to better serve our customers.”
For the rest:

Good stuff, the more publishers offering DRM Free e-books (and especially through publisher/author friendly outlets like Smashwords) the better. Thanks for the link
