Richard Matthew Stallman, president of the Free Software Foundation, published an essay The Danger of E-Books, which he calls attention to dangerous restrictions on freedom to impose on users, some manufacturers of electronic books.
In particular, the purchase of paper books:
- You can pay by cash, anonymously.
- After buying the book belongs to you.
- No need to sign any license that restricts the right to use the book.
- “Format” of the book is known to all that read it, do not need any proprietary software.
