So there's this open source e-book DRM scheme called LCP.

Which sounds like a contradiction, but it's actually opensource on

So obviously the second part of that statement is false and I can't see how this can exist. Their implementation encrypts the ebook with a static keypair and when licencing a book it encrypts the private key for the book with an user-generated public key. There doesn't seem to be any protection against just decrypting the book once and storing it
