- I borrowed most of your books from the library...but I'm probably going to buy the ebooks the first day they're available DRM-free. Tor should be rewarded here.Apr 24, 2012
- News has hit Metafilter. I hope you don't mind that I told people there about your blog post, I thought it would add to the discussion.

- So just to be clear, this won't force Amazon to allow us to download MacMillian DRM-free titles. That will be a separate fight, right? MacMillian isn't forcing their distributors to be DRM-free, but simply promising to make their titles available somewhere DRM-free.

- I'm glad to see a major publisher jump on the DRM-free train. If we look to other entertainment markets it's obvious that the majority of people have no issue buying products as long as you make them accessible and easy to purchase.Apr 24, 2012
- About freakin' time.Apr 24, 2012
