UK Channel 4 news item on ebook piracy

Not a particularly in-depth news item, but interesting in the sense that awareness of ebook piracy is clearly penetrating the mainstream press consciousness on the eve of the Kindle's arrival in the UK. Mostly they talk to people who provide DRM at the Frankfurt Book Fair, but also the head of a publishing house who cannily skirted the question of how The Lost Symbol might have wound up on filesharing sites as quickly as it did. I hope to hear the voices of dissenters such as Sara Lloyd, Pan Macmillan's head of digital publishing and someone who stands in opposition to DRM, becoming more prevalent in the run-up to Christmas.

Random House international director, Simon Littlewood, told me that the file we'd discovered was more than likely to have emerged as a result of a major British high street retailer accidentally offering the book for download without DRM (digital rights management) encryption that would restrict it from being viewed on more than one device.

i'm actually a bit frustrated that there doesn't seem to be any way to leave a comment there ; it seems to me someone should give them some more accurate info.

At least he called them "E-book readers"

I thought the video was well done.

Thanks for the link.
