Tom Doherty Associates, publishers of Tor, Forge, Orb, Starscape,
and Tor Teen, today announced that by early July 2012, their
entire list of e-books will be available DRM-free.
“Our authors and readers have been asking for this for a long
time,” said president and publisher Tom Doherty. “They’re a
technically sophisticated bunch, and DRM is a constant annoyance
to them. It prevents them from using legitimately-purchased
e-books in perfectly legal ways, like moving them from one kind of
e-reader to another.”
Hope this is the start of a trend.
