Calls for big-six publishers to drop DRM have increased in recent weeks, coinciding with the DOJ price-fixing lawsuit. Many observers fear that the lawsuit will actually reduce competition in the e-book marketplace by cementing Amazon’s role as the dominant player — and they wonder whether DRM is simply another weapon in Amazon’s arsenal, keeping customers locked to the Kindle Store.

Certainly not a fan of DRM but not one to go breaking it. Hopefully they'll open it up one day and allow customers to choose which is the better e-reader platform. Certainly create some good competition on pricing and on product creation.
