getting around


I was interested to discover earlier today that the news of Pan MacMillan's experiment with non-DRM ebooks has been spreading; to my knowledge I was the first to bring it to public attention in the Mobile Read forums. From there it spread to a couple of items at Teleread, with this piece grabbing my interest in particular; it has a link to a demo video by the makers of the stanza ebook software showing, amongst several others, Stealing Light. The image you can see is a screengrab taken from the video, of an iphone running the software (the picture is from Teleread).

I just bought Stealing Light and started reading it on Stanza. It's fantastic!! I love reading on my iPhone!

Do you know any other books they will be releasing without DRM?

Hi Andreau, to my knowledge any ebook published by Pan MacMillan is DRM-free, *as long* as you buy it direct from www.panmacmillan.com. If you buy it from another source, the chances are it has DRM.
