I don't get rid of any books. Even if I never get around to rereading it, I still want access to it. If I wanted temporary access, I would get it from the library.

Digital books or music are theoretically eternal. Practically, this is only true if one has the ability to convert it to new formats as technology moves forward.

My experience with DRM is that it doesn't prevent piracy. It does, however, put burdens on the paying customer. I've had several computer games that were broken due to the DRM. Paying customers were annoyed and waiting for a patch. Those who had downloaded the cracked version were playing happily.
