2000AD ditches DRM

A couple of weeks ago I asked: Is Digital Rights Management effective against piracy?

There’s a powerful; argument that it doesn’t deter the pirates, and that all it really does is upset people who have purchased an ebook on one device and then have to buy it again to read it on another one.

Judge Dredd is a nice guy really

I like their comment:

“We’ve always trusted our readers”

Good stuff. You can read the full article here:
