Brave New Tort

Oh brother -- after Justin Taylor's week of riling up the masses over the brave new world of eBooks, apparently it turns out that the Kindle 2 violates a pretty serious piece of copyright law.

Suddenly an eBook is going to have to cost as much as a book plus the audiobook, which is a huge boon to the author and a huge fork in the eye to the consumer.

As a budding author myself, I say, "lay it on, baby!" As a fan of technology and gadgets, and a covetous man at heart, I say, "kill all the lawyers -- especially the ones who are doing this."

I'm going to lock myself in a room alone and battle it out until only one opinion remains.
