New Crack for Amazon’s Kindle E-Books Emerges - Digits - WSJ

You know a platform is popular when…

A blogger who goes by the name i♥cabbages claims to have created software that removes the digital rights management (DRM) software embedded into Amazon Kindle e-books PC reading application.

The Kindle’s DRM software keeps a person from sharing his or her Amazon e-books with other people, or reading them on non-Amazon platforms. Hacks for it have existed since 2008, with at least some of the early work being done by a person going by the name “Dark Reverser.” (He didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.)
