Rights Management Under Fire
A conversation with Adobe's James Alexander
NA: Is the lack of widespread acceptance of DRM architecture an impediment to more rapid expansion of the market for e-books?
JA: Who said the e-book market isn't expanding rapidly? The market for rights-managed content is tripling, even quadrupling every year. The best DRM in the world has little to do with technology. The best DRM has three components: widely available content that is reasonably priced and is easy to use. If there isn't anything good to read, well, guess what? No one is going to buy. Making that content easy to use is where Adobe and the Network Publishing vision come in. With every release of our DRM products, it gets easier and easier to use rights-managed content.
But the problems with Adobe eBooks are: it is the easiest to break, not compatible with Pocket PC, I can't back up the ebooks and probably loss them when I change the computer...(which I did)
