LIBRIe or LIBRiie?

According to this article over at Teleread (based on this recent dottocomu entry + comments), Sony’s long awaited E-ink technology powered LIBRIe is full of consumer unfriendly DRM-bloat.

Sony’s Librie reportedly has debuted in Japan with a library of just 400 books. That’s not all. Your purchase, er, your rental, will vanish in 60 days after you’ve plunked down your $5 or so.

I doubt this is going to be a hit…

NB: another recent e-book (but not DRM) related article: Publishers Push Return of the E-Book (Japan Media Review).
