FW have said that they are considering adding eReader DRM to ePub.

If they do that will be another challenge for us old lags to find out how to remove it.

I really hope that they follow through on that now that they are owned by B&N. The eReader DRM is not nearly so clumsy, obnoxious and obtrusive as Adept, and it locks the book to a particular person instead of to a particular device or small set of devices as Adept does.

all they need to do it have every other Ebook reader come onto the market with ADOBE epub drm support. and then they may switch to Epub.

but currently. they seem to be selling more than enough kindles and kindle books.
Amen! We see that in their mp3 downloads. I believe Amazon would prefer DRM free books.
