DefectiveByDesign.org has announced an action against libraries that support DRM on their collections. Boston locals can join them this Saturday from 1pm to 3pm at the Boston Public Library's main branch, and non-locals are encouraged to stage an action against their own library if it's using DRM.

emusic was the forerunner to the DRM-free music business expansion. This business expanded in response to the outcry of people wanting it and in response to the success of people selling DRM free tracks and to the problems created by iTunes using DRM to hold on to a monopoly. We are encouraging people to do the same thing that already worked for music, for books. I don't see any reason why it won't also work in this context. It's not about the absolute size of the audiobook business, it's about the relative demand for DRMd audiobooks versus DRM-free audiobooks.
