None of the big five.

So far it has been only one academic publisher (Pearson) and publishers in a specific market (India). In both cases the driving force seems to be a perception that customers have a greater than usual likelihood of trying to copy books and make them available to others.

I suspect that for the next several years KFX-only will be limited to specific markets and publishers who value enhanced DRM over customer satisfaction. After that who knows?
