Angry Bokon.se removing access to purchased books with a 1-day notice

Bokon.se is a Swedish book store. I got this e-mail today (2018-07-30):

Quote:
Kära läsare

Vårt samarbete med distributören av engelska böcker, Ingram, upphör den 31. juli 2018. Det betyder att vi efter detta datum inte längre kommer kunna erbjuda försäljning eller nedladdning av dessa böcker på Bokon. Det är därför viktigt att du laddar ned dina engelska böcker till din dator innan den 31 juli 2018. När avtalet med Ingram upphör kommer du inte längre kunna hitta dessa böcker i ditt bibliotek eller ha möjlighet att läsa dem i vår applikation.

Böcker från Ingram är DRM-skyddade och normala regler för att låsa upp dessa böcker gäller fortfarande. Läs mer här https://support.bokon.se/hc/sv/artic...u-ett-Adobe-ID

Du finner dina engelska böcker här: https://bokon.se/library/ingram/

Vill du veta mer om DRM-skyddade böcker, nedladdning eller hur du sparar dessa i backup, finner du mer information här: https://support.bokon.se/hc/sv/artic...med-DRM-skydd-

Vi hoppas innerligt att det här inte ställer till det allt för mycket för dig som kund på Bokon. Behöver du hjälp kan du kontakta vår kundtjänst: https://support.bokon.se/hc/sv/artic...6-Kontakta-oss
Basically it says that their contract with Ingram (their distributor of English books) will expire after 2018-07-31 and any purchased books will no longer be accessible after that date. Note that this is tomorrow, so they're giving a one day notice for customers to download their books before they permanently lose access to their purchased content. One day notice!

Then companies wonder why many people feel compelled to remove DRM from books, resort to piracy, or lose faith completely and refuse to purchase books in electronic form.

Make a post on https://www.facebook.com/Bokon.se/ and let them know that it's not ok.

Stallman was right.
