I don’t think the print/digital dichotomy matters anymore, it just requires a bit of a creative hack.
Books want to be free. They may be costly to make, edit, proofread and copyedit, distribute, etc. but it only takes a visit to the library with a smartphone and an app or someone able to hack the DRM in the ePub to change the situation. This is the argument of this book, and I think the point of liberation tech too.
It is just so ironic that your book on what I gather is a perspective
inspired on the Frankfurt School's Critical Theory to the modern
digital world is published primarily by print media, and at a cost
that makes it prohibitive to the very people that can benefit "through
its discussion of how the digital can be transformed by political
action and the organisation of digital resistance." - Christian De
Cock, University of Essex, UK
