The lament of a disillusioned ebook reader: the frustrating experience of buying and reading ebooks
Gabriele Alese

Just a nitpick. On the latest issue of Venerdì di Repubblica there was a review of a book which will be available from September 5 ☹

Apart from this, I fully agree with you. I know that some publisher (Utet and Zanichelli) gave for free the ebook, using a code printed in the paper book; and I assume it would be much more effective to use some steganographic techniques to add a watermark in the cover picture of the ebook, if people want to know where the circulating copies come from.
