Hey Wil, Regarding the DRM thing, I was just thinking that, being as you are Kind of a Big Deal on the intertubes, a more direct approach with Lulu might be in order. Have you tried contacting this guy? http://lulupresscenter.com/executive/view/profile/bob_young He's their CEO and founder, and also one of the founders of Red Hat, the company that makes one of the earliest and most successful Linux distros. I seem to remember some time ago when he left Red Hat to found Lulu, that part of his 'mission' was to enable creators to release their works with whatever rights they want to. Perhaps a direct email to him would stir things up, asking why it is so difficult for you and other authors to make your work available un-DRMed, or to change that decision later. He is Kind of a Big Deal over there, so it could work.
