@art Though shalt have known before. DRM = Digital Restriction Management.

Btw: My ebooks (yes, I wrote some Android books) on Amazon are without DRM (unless Amazon ignored the setting). Just because. The button says "Buy", not "Borrow".

@art I hardly can preach water and drink wine 😆 Besides, my ebooks at Amazon are rather mostly for donations. The real oneas are even more free ( cc by nc sa) ebooks.qumran.org/ is my library of 9000+ German and ~1000 English ebooks. My own few among the former.

@art "Anymore?" Try: "Never owned them in the first place." 👍
