Copyright is tiresome

This is rather sad, all the more so since the copyright law in US protects property over the civil rights. Well, the overwhelming evidence (read: buttering up RIA) points in that direction, doesn't it?

Back to main story. It appears that 9 disability groups have written to major publishers "urging major publishers to activate the computerized voice that reads digital books out-loud on the Kindle 2."

Wow, the publishers must look like the Grinch now.

The issue of copyright/intellectual property is so absurd. Remember the time cops had a chat with a charity organisation just because they were playing the radio loudly (read: violated copyright).

Better yet, read about this story about the Irish kindergartens being nagged for royalties!
