Packt publication is celebrating International Day Against DRM today and this is a welcome sign for all the users of this ebook publisher. Personally, I've never been a fan of DRM and have always felt that it only encouraged piracy by harassing the legitimate users.
To mark this occasion, Packt Publication is showing its support for the clause by giving worthwhile discounts as mentioned in their press release:
Packt Publishing firmly believes that you should be able to read and interact with your content when you want, where you want, and how you want – to that end they have been advocates of DRM-free content since their very first eBook was published back in 2004.
To show their continuing support for Day Against DRM, Packt Publishing is offering all its DRM-free content at $10 for 24 hours only on May 6th eBooks and Videos at www.packtpub.com.
“Our top priority at Packt has always been to meet the evolving needs of developers
in the most practical way possible, while at the same time protecting the hard work of our authors. DRM-free content continues to be instrumental in making that happen, providing the flexibility and freedom that is essential for an efficient and enhanced learning experience. That’s why we’ve been DRM-free from the beginning – we’ll never put limits on the innovation of our users.”
– Dave Maclean, Managing Director
Advocates of Day Against DRM are invited to spread the word and celebrate on May 6th by exploring the full range of DRM-free content at www.packtpub.com, where all eBooks and Videos will be $10 for 24 hours.
