Submission + - SF author Simon Haynes argues against ebook DRM (teleread.org)

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."
