Strategies for a discontinuous future.

Uh oh. The ugly question of property rights comes up again, this time regarding Amazon's new Search in the Book feature. Apparently, the Authors' Guild is objecting to the feature, on the grounds that while it might be good for marketing purposes, it lets potential readers print out huge tracts of any book indexed by the search, letting them extract most of the value.

The grounds for the objection are that publishers don't have the right to grant Amazon this kind of access without authors' consent.

But everyone else is raving about it...already.
