MacJury #902: The MacJury Doesn’t Hear Evidence on the Kindle Text-to-Speech Decision

The MacJury couldn’t hear the evidence on the Kindle text-to-speech issue; they had to read it, since the Kindle will no longer support that feature for many audiobooks. Is this a case of authors’ rights being protected, or DRM-style thinking on the part of the Author’s Guild? The answers, the questions and the long-term implications will surprise you. Drawing on examples in movies, music and more, an in-depth discussion of the issues is delivered by:
