Yesterday Tim O'Reilly posted about a new option for O'Reilly books - buy them by the chapter for $3.99 each! Keeping in mind that many of O'Reilly's offerings are techie references, this might just work well for them. Personally, $3.99 is a little steep for me to consider it, but personally, I don't buy songs at $.99/ea either, so I'm probably not the best demographic to worry about :-) One of the commenters to the original post asked about DRM, and the response was very refreshing:
>>What kind of DRM is used with these chapters?
As with all our PDFs, there is no DRM except the trust we place in you to treat the document as you would a print book.
>>Is printing allowed, obviously for use only by the owner of the PDF?
>>Is it password protected? Am I going to have any trouble with any PDF readers?
No password required. Our PDFs word best with Adobe reader, but others work too.
