Sony to start selling epub?

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/13/te...er=rss&emc=rss

"On Thursday, Sony Electronics, which sells e-book devices under the Reader brand, plans to announce that by the end of the year it will sell digital books only in the ePub format, an open standard created by a group including publishers like Random House and HarperCollins.

Sony will also scrap its proprietary anticopying software in favor of technology from the software maker Adobe that restricts how often e-books can be shared or copied."

Wonder if they are going to offer the books that people previously bought in LRX format in ePub. That would be great! But I guess this could be bad news for those who actually purchase from the Sony store and enjoy the LRX format.

Oops, just saw this posted http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53450

Quote:
Companies like Sony and Adobe do not want to abandon anticopying measures, fearing that piracy of books would run rampant. Rather, they want to push the e-book industry toward common standards to avoid a replay of Apple’s domination of the digital music business.
Quote:
Later in the year, the company will begin selling a third Reader that will, like the Kindle, allow users to buy e-books wirelessly.
This is news.

This is news.
Hopefully they won't restrict all access to the device except through the online service like the Kindle did. I like being able to find files here and copy them to the device without having to email them to Amazon.
