I read a blog who i do not follow (my blog) where the trails and tribulations of ebook self publishing are sort of explored.. No mention of drm is made.
I tried to read these blogs that became an self published ebook and gave up. The blog postings are not available anymore either as the self publishing thing got dcma’ed or made the ‘creator’ remove them.
While being an author probably sounds great I am honestly not sure that self publishing is the way to go, but so long as the publisher gets rich i suppose capitalism wins. Whether or not culture will remember these ‘artists’ is a point up for discussion, remember that the copyright lobby really does not care about it (my blog).
