no, nor would most, though I'm sure there are some. I have _zero_ qualms about stripping DRM from the books I've bought. That's just good common sense to enable archival backups, etc. In fact, I virtually never send a book directly to my Kindle. I pull it down to my PC, clean it up, load into Calibre, and only then do I put it on my Kindle.
Putting it up in a public place for others to read? No, that would not seem fair and I wouldn't do it.
