NorthernMT: So let me see if I understand this.Students today are paying for textbooks.They are probably being forced to pay a premium to buy them in ebook form.And just to reward them for it, they get to voluntarily give their professors the right to monitor their reading activities.And as a wonderful coup de grace, they probably can't even recoup ten bucks of their investment at the end of the term, because they have only bought a license to the book and not the book itself. Then to make it worse, if they are part of the one percent who hold onto their books as reference manuals, then they will probably lose it later when they switch devices due to DRM.
