Digital audio books – anticopying software removal

The New York Times reports that some publishers are removing the anticopying software in digital downloads of audio books. This move will allow readers to share the downloaded files between different devices like iPods and cell phones.

If the copying restrictions are dropped downloads could be purchased through different stores. The Borders Store in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has already launched an online audio book download store using DRM (digital rights management) from Microsoft. Publishers are hoping that the restriction removal will  foster new interest in reading audio books.

Random House, Penguin Group and Simon & Schuster Audio are a few of the publishers jumping on the bandwagon.
