Amazon to restrict read-aloud functions

The Guardian has an excellent post on the Amazon Kindle controversy. The Author’s Guild threatened legal action against Amazon because the Kindle’s read-aloud function “is not paying anyone for audio rights”. Neither does my sister when she reads books to my nephews, but I digress.

What a sad state of affairs, some authors seem intent on stifling a new technology simply because they are not squeezing out the last penny from users.
