Microsoft made the announcement in April that it would shutter the Microsoft Store’s books section for good.

And starting as soon as this week, it’s going to remove all purchased books from the libraries of those who bought them.

Microsoft will refund customers in full for what they paid, plus an extra $25 if they made annotations or mark-ups.

For certain types of readers, particularly lawyers and academics, markups and annotations can be worth far more than $25.

Just refuse to buy products infected with DRM malware.
