“DRMing” Public Domain Texts [8:54 am]

BoingBoing points out that you can buy your own DRM-protected copy of the US Constitution from Amazon: DRM’ed Constitution: more primitive than the original [via IPNewsBlog]

This DRM’ed ebook version of the US Constitution costs $3, and can only be printed twice per year. As John notes, “It would only take 7 years to get copies out to the 13 colonies. Even with the primitive means the colonists had, it only took a few months to distribute the constitution.”
