Sony, B&N promise to rekindle rights for book owners

Sony has a new ebook reader in the works, called the Daily Edition, and they intend to distance themselves from Amazon, and their Kindle reader, by allowing people to own their books.

“Our commitment is that you bought it, you own it,” Haber said. “Our hope is to see this as ubiquitous. Buy on any device, read on any device. … We’re obligated to have DRM but we don’t pull content back.”

I’m not sure why these terms are acceptable to anyone. Owning your ebooks sounds nice, but the DRM has got to go.
