Way back on 25 March 2003, the issue of PC Magazine, page 25, has a brief news item as follows: An anonymous tech whiz has created a 29K command line program called Convert Lit to turn Microsoft Reader's Digital Rights Management component against itself. PC Magazine has verified that running Convert Lit on a PC with legitimate rights to read a purchased DRM5 e-book title removes all protection and even exports HTML from the LIT file. This battle will never be solved solely with technology. Something the Defense Department never understood about its software reuse efforts in the 1980s.
