When I was a bookseller in Toronto, nothing that happened would ever result in me breaking into your house to take back the books I’d sold you, and if I did, the fact that I left you a refund wouldn’t have made up for the theft. Not all the books Microsoft is confiscating are even for sale any longer, and some of the people whose books they’re stealing made extensive annotations that will go up in smoke.
While I was big on eBooks via Kindle for a number of years, I’m back to purchasing print as often as possible. If I’m not sure about owning a book, I’ll head to the local used bookstore or the library. There I borrow, or purchase a used copy and if it doesn’t warrant a permanent place on my shelves I return it to the used bookstore for a decent credit, or just return it to the library with no expense outside of walking two blocks to pick it up.
I didn’t stop buying eBooks for DRM reasons, I just wanted to be off-screen at the end of the day.
