EBook Readers Unite!

The argument rages on about the why publishers feel the need to use DRM in their eBook formats. Recently, there have been some excellent responses as to how DRM is harming the eBook industry and its growth potential.

Are your eyes glazing over and your mouse calling you to click over to something else because you don’t know what DRM stands for? Well I didn’t get it for awhile either, so don’t feel bad! Check out the Wikipedia entry here – it gave me a great general overview of DRM.

The ladies at Smart Bitches frequently lament the scourge that is DRM and Smart Bitch Sarah did a particularly great post last week when they listed all the publishers who are DRM FREE.

Check out Sarah’s spot-on post here.

In reference to the Smart Bitches listing of DRM free publishers, The Galaxy Express decided to take up the call and consolidate many DRM, lists and comment sections into one HOT DAMN! list of DRM Free publishers.

Behold! For Your DRM FREE Downloading Pleasure!
