Reports are coming in today that the latest version of Requiem, an app that removes Fairplay DRM from music and videos sold via iTunes, will now also remove the DRM from iBooks ebooks.
This new news is notable as it’s within the first time that the DRM of iBooks has ever been circumvented. This allows the downloaded iBooks from iTunes to be allowed to be used on different platforms other than the iBooks reader made by Apple.
The DRM for music from the iTunes Music Store has already been circumvented in the past which had resulted in a mouse and cat game for updates to iTunes in disabling those kinds of hacks. It is likely that Apple will be responding to this in a very similar kind of way to this new hack.
