Swedish publishers adopt social DRM

I just came across this post from a Swedish blogger. She's reporting that almost all Swedish publishers have agreed  to support Epub as their primary format, as well as drop the more restrictive forms of DRM in favor of social DRM. To be exact, they plan to add a form of digital watermark to the digital files that will contain identifying information.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
