This article is somewhat inaccurate and quite misleading.
First off, not all iBooks have DRM protection (you would know this if you've ever created an iBook using iBook Author). It's a feature that can be disabled via a check box in the application .
Secondly, converting an iBook to an ePub file does certainly allow for viewing on a PC, however you fail to mention that all interactivity (animations, videos, quizzes, etc) become completely unusable.
Maybe do some research next time or, I don't know, ask people who make these things for a living ... ?
and to the people that 'thumb-downed' me: comment and make your case rather than simply showing disapproval ... it'll make this far more constructive for everyone ...
