Is this about DRM? DRM is unethical and should be illegal.
People or publishers can publish on Amazon or Smashwords, DRM free. I write and publish. I'm opposed to DRM and have never used it. I will though pursue anyone selling without giving me my royalty, or giving away copies, or plagiarising.
DRM doesn't even work anyway. It's contrary to the Berne Convention as it is still there when the copyright expires. Frequently blocks all fair use, or seriously limits it.
I also believe copyright should revert to author after 5 years and never be assigned to publisher for life of copyright, also 10 years after death is generous. The 70 years is a corporate land grab.
I remove DRM from anything I buy, but I don't even make copies for friends, only to other devices (like read Kindle on a Kobo) and/or backups.
Can we have clarification as to what these vulnerabilities enable?
Mine coat has a paperback and a Kobo. A commercial "pirate" can cut off binding, auto scan a book quickly, OCR, and even proof.
The problem is never ordinary individuals or downloaders but people uploading to "file sharing" sites and mostly commercial piracy.
When stuff is easily available, and reasonably priced (you listening Big 6 on eBooks or all CDs vs DVDs) then most people don't bother with piracy.
