Good framework let down by greed and profit

Content is fine, moderate update to previous edition.
Printing - what a mess! It's on very low quality paper. I don't mind recycled paper at all, but when you're paying £60 you don't expect this.
CRIMINALLY there's also a copy control measure which has wavy text on the background to prevent photocopying. This is like the cd DRM debacle a few years back; the only people it negatively impacts are people who genuinely purchase the book. It's giving my team headaches and makes it largely difficult to read for any length of time. Predictably there are places to get this not-in-book-form that get around this that I'm sure are less than legitimate, so it only serves to drive people away from purchasing the book.
Another case where the PMI sees its profit as more important than its practitioners.
