thanks guys for the friendly warnings - obviously DRM is not meant for 
anyone without a bank account like NewsCorp or Viacom. I merely 
represent a successful fellow who wants to self-publish a few ebooks 
for $9.95, not a multi-tentacled conglomerate. Although the Lulu.com 
stuff does seem to be the little guy's best hope. In any case, the 
client now thinks a simple expiring download key and the honor system 
will suffice.
