Wil Wheaton on Life Without DRM

Wil Weaton, known to some as Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation, has gained more publicity in the last decade as a writer giving voice to geek culture. His latest work is available as an audiobook available only directly from Wheaton's website, not Amazon's Audible service.

Read Wheaton's comments about Audible and DRM, and how he's willing to trade off lack of control over bit copying for more control over pricing and profit. Seems that most of the arguments about DRM have focused on preserving the profit slice of a shrinking pie, rather than finding ways to make the pie bigger.

Punchline: I discovered this via Wheaton's Twitter feed, where I'm one of about 27,000 people who are making that pie bigger.
