[One addendum: It's true that the Princeton bookstore is selling DRM'd 
ebooks. But the Princeton bookstore is independent of the university. 
Perhaps the university resents the implied affiliation? --Declan]

I don't see the shield to which the Princeton lawyers are referring.
Surely engadget didn't take DOWN the Princeton trademark, used fairly as
an illustration for the story?  What cowards, if so.

Time for everyone to start using the shield to illustrate their
comments on how stupid Princeton's lawyers are........

Dave, Princeton has announced this program to "sell" rights-managed
textbooks to ugrads.  Actually allows downloading one heavily
copy-protected pdf to one machine.  All very silly and the object of a
fair amount of criticism, such as:

http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000153053372/ 

What's unusual about that is that Princeton's lawyers responded to
that
posting and made it clear where they stand on protecting intellectual
property.
