A recent report dissected the BooXtream “Social DRM” eBook watermarks. The Institute for Biblio-Immunology tore down the privacy-busting system after publisher Verso refused to remove the DRM from an Aaron Swartz book.

Anti-piracy groups always invent new ways to stop people from sharing copyrighted content. Some of them chose watermarking in order to track content and provide a trail back to the source.

Watermarking aka “Social DRM” limits inconvenience to the end user and doesn’t hinder file compatibility across devices, while having serious privacy implications for people using “infected” files.

Researchers from the Institute for Biblio-Immunology detailed its work against the BooXtream watermarking system offered by Dutch company Icontact after publisher Verso Books published an eBook version of Aaron Swartz’s book “The Boy Who Could Change the World”. The matter is that BooXtream embeds the personal details of the buyer into the book, which stays with the file forever. So if that book is caught shared, the buyer can be held responsible.

Although the representative of Aaron Swartz asked the publisher to remove the watermarks, Verso refused. Now the Institute for Biblio-Immunology has revealed how the watermarking system works and can be defeated. The researchers believe that books should inform buyers, not breach their privacy. As you know, people in the West take the freedom to read any books they want for granted, but not everyone has that luxury. The researchers think that people should not only be able to read whatever they want, but also be able to share that knowledge with others.
