Concernant  les  "DRM", voici  un  petit  email  envoyé par  l'éditeur
Manning à ses  clients ebooks. Les ebooks manning  sont disponibles en
version PDF sans aucun "DRM" pour l'instant. 

J'ai déjà exprimé mon désaccord en tant que client. 

Mais  n'hésitez pas  à écrire  à  Manning pour  exprimer vos  craintes
concernant les "DRM" surtout pour l'édition.

Dear Manning Customer,

As a purchaser of a Manning ebook, would you please take a minute to
answer two questions to help us develop our ebook program?

In order to provide more flexible licensing programs and to stem the
alarming increase in piracy of these ebooks, Manning is investigating
digital rights management (DRM) solutions for use on future ebooks. We
want to minimize the inconvenience of DRM while providing protection
for us and more flexibility for you.

Many DRM solutions are available for Windows only, or Windows and 
Mac OS X but not for Linux and PDAs. Please reply to this message and
place your answers below. We'd appreciate your opinion on the

1) Would you consider (or continue) to buy Manning ebooks if they are
only supported on Windows and MacOS X?

2) How critical is support for PDAs? (and if critical, what platform -
Palm, PocketPC, etc)

If you have any suggestions, comments, and in particular know of any
cross platform DRM client solutions, please let us know in the space

Thank you!
