I'd like one and I love the announcement of DRM free. Hate the hassles DRM puts me though if my computer crashes or I move things from one computer to another. I'm more likely to buy an e-book if its DRM free than if it's got DRM, the same as with music.

191. Dan Someone
I am assuming that since you have made these books DRM-free, they come in a sealed physical lockbox and we will be given one-time pad cypher keys to open the box, from which we may extract one page at a time, and which will dispense a new page only upon the deposit of the previous page. Security and copy protection, yo!

(I would like to win. Thank you!)

How do I enter for the contest? Sign me up too!

I've been hesitant to buy an e-reader for a long time, mostly because of the issues friends have had with the DRM...Things like books dissappearing mid-read because the license was revoked due to a dispute with the ebook publisher, or the DRM preventing it from being read at all, for no detectable reason.

While I don't think ereaders will ever completely replace the good old fashioned dead tree book, (can't duplicate the feel and smell of paper books, nor the paper and dust smell of a library or bookstore! All manner of good memories associated with that scent...) ebooks are a good deal cheaper to produce. No overprinted runs, no remnanted books tossed coverless into the recycle bin, and no shipping charges. Hopefully the lower overhead means bigger royalties for the authors!

I'd like to join the chorus of voices proclaiming their love of reading and their hatred of DRM files. I understand the difficulty for content creators who don't want to see their works pirated, but I am definately not a pirate but am treated like one at every turn. If there has been one overarching concern that has kept me from purchasing an e-reader (aside from the money to buy one) it's a hesitance to get locked into any one ecosystem.

I'm very excited that TOR is taking this step, and thanks to you and MacMillan for the great offer!

DRM-free ebooks makes it possible to enjoy my favorite literature without concerns that retailer specific distribution schemes or hardware will lock me out of bringing the books I love from one computer to my next device.

Having lost DRM-encrusted media before (most recently Mobipocket.com), I'm glad to see TOR that the only people being inconvenienced by DRM are their PAYING customers.

I hope and pray that DRM is beecoming a thing of the past like the dinosaur. It was said earlier that if you buy a paper book, you can read it, lend it, and even sell it. With a DRM ebook you are stuck with it if you do not like the book. And heaven help you if you buy a different ereader and have to fight with the Adobe Digital Editions ereader. That is a piece of unrepentant junk that should have never been produced and "forced" down our throats.

I think this is the best way for Publishers to stay relevent in the new age of digital medium. The work you do with the authors and editing the work to make sure it's the best can't be discounted, but without making it so it's available to all platforms we'll all get locked into one device and be unwilling to change because we'll lose all our books!

1. To Enter: Visit here (http://www.tor.com/blogs/2012/06/6-drm-free-ebooks-sweepstakes) and submit your entry by commenting on the post found on the Site. Sweepstakes begins online at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on June 4, 2012 and ends at 12:00 p.m. ET on June 8, 2012.

There should be a "-" in "ebooks" (e-books) like this:

Best idea ever guys! I am completely sick of DRM and the trouble it causes genuninely honest customers to supposedly try and prevent theft but oh yeah funny thing I can't use something I bought on everything I own and don't even think of switching formats if the competitor comes out with the better mousetrap. I refuse to buy more than one copy of something and now we are on the road to not having to, so thank you.

Of course I would also love one of those flashdrives with the free books, I always will take a free book to read as quick as I go through them I could go absolutely broke if it wasn't for the library.

Typically, I'm just a lurker and don't alsways even sign in. Free ebooks as bait. I guess that I'm trapped. Especially now that TRO is moving to no DRM. I won't say that I don't buy ebooks with DRM, but I do very seroiusly consider them and how badly I want them before I do. There are several Tor books that I have not bought due to DRM. I have already had one format go to life support and use 2 differing formats (even double buying some TOR (Weber's Safehold) novels to avoid availablity issuses. No DRM for those of us that are already hoset is very important to me.

It is great to see an enlightened publisher. Tor has been innovative in any case and going DRM-free shows their confidence in comsumers. I, for one, see the primary advantage of DRM-free is being able to move my book to the various reading devices I use without restriction.

This is really the wave of the future. I don't think that electronic files change the nature of sharing more than sharing books, used bookstores, and libraries do -- they only make a purchase more likely. Storage, availibility, and advertising are the real services people are paying for here.
Tina Pierce

This is a great step forward for e-readers. I still LOVE a good paper book, but e-books have become a BIG part of my book buying budget. (oops, did I say book buying & budget in the same sentance, silly me....)

1281. Eric D.
This is really exciting news! I'm very much looking forward to more of the industry embracing DRM-free ebooks. DRM'd / "defective by design" books only restrict the choice of legitimate users - the pirates will pirate them anyway regardless of what mechanism is used, so DRM becomes an inferior product compared to the pirate copy whcih is flexible and easy to use.

Also I'd love to get one of these *hopes for luck*

I always try to purchase my e-books directly from the author or their publisher. I would rather have the money bypass amazon if at all possible.
Unfortunately I still buy my hard-backs from Amazon. Free shipping via Amazon Prime is hard to beat.

The cadence of the DRuMs sparks rhythm, uniformity, and pace. There is a greatness there, but one that overlooks the beauty of a whisper.

DRM is a hot button issue. I understand why so many companies/authors choose it, but it's easier on the consumer to not have it. Kudos to TOR for opting for an simplified experience for their customers.

So very cool, the DRM free books make it like you actually own the book and can do with it what you like including lending to others to read, just like when we all used to read paper books.
