Hopefully, this will get the ball rolling on DRM free eBooks.

That's great!  Tor's been very forward-thinking when it comes to ebooks.  They've offered many of their popular books for free on their site.

I'll have to see if there are any Tor books on my "keeper" list and purchase them once they start doing this.

I think they've realized that what ever money Baen Books (fantasy and scifi) is making, it's enough to keep them afloat.

Baen even has a large Free Library, besides being DRM-less.
