Burning eBooks - B&N "nukes the NOOK"



Barnes & Noble is shutting down its Nook app store, (effective from March 15, 2016) through which it sold ebooks for its e-reader, the Nook.

Unless Nook owners in the UK take action immediately then their ebooks (& films) could be lost to them. It is yet another example of how you don’t own your ebooks with DRM - you’re merely licensing the right to read them for a time. This announcement is a bit like a commercially driven virtual Fahrenheit 451 "fireman" is going to disable your eBooks in a fast digital fire.
