Submission + - SF author Simon Haynes argues against ebook DRM (

Simon Haynes writes: "E-books face two major hurdles before consumers take to them in big numbers: They're too expensive, and most are encumbered with restrictive DRM.

Simon Haynes is the author of the bestselling, award-winning Hal Spacejock series. His novels have just been released as DRM-free ebooks, and in this article he explains why he spent 12 months convincing his publisher it was the right way to go."

"Falling in love makes smoking pot all day look like the ultimate in restraint." -- Dave Sim, author of Cerebrus.
