19. Fires of dissent - Kindle II revisited

It seems that the Authors Guild in the USA has forced Amazon to reconsider (remove!) the use of text-to--speech on their electronic book Kindle II. This could have far reaching implications. It seems to have brought protesters out on the street. See the video link below for details of the discussions. I would strongly recommend anybody who is considering buying one to think about the implications.
