Readers Bill of Rights

HaperCollins announced it would limit its electronic library books to a certain amount of checkouts before self destructing. This flies in the face of what libraries do and changes the value of the digital files.

A group of librarians, readers, and authors have formed to protest this move and the inclusion of DRM in e-books and they asked Nina Paley to create a logo symbolizing their stance against digital restrictions.
