Book publishers Tor Books and Forge Books, imprints of Tom Dougherty Associates, LLC (which itself is a division of Macmillan), announced today that all ebooks published under those imprints would be sold without digital rights management (DRM) protection through “Amazon, B&N, Apple, Kobo, Google, and most other major ebook retailers.” This new policy covers both newly published ebooks as well as ebooks from the imprints’ back lists. Tor senior editor Patrick Nielsen Hayden said in the announcement, “To the best of our knowledge we’re the first division of a Big Six publishing conglomerate to go down this road, but we doubt very much that we’ll be the last.” Tor specializes in science-fiction and fantasy; Forge offers thrillers, mysteries, and historical fiction, as well as general fiction titles.Generic Globefollow link

I love how TOR big note themselves as the "first division of a Big Six Publishing conglomerate" to go DRM free. Of course they are still playing catch-up with one of the biggest Independent publishers of Sci-Fi and Fantasy titles, Baen, who have always been DRM free (http://www.baen.com/)

And their comment on DRM (http://www.baenebooks.com/t-DRM.aspx)
