On the Internet Archive’s blog on April 10, Office Manager Chris Butler wrote that over the previous week, the Archive had received a series of email notices from a French government agency erroneously identifying over 550 URLs as “terrorist propaganda.” The blog post has an extensive list, but they included a number of major […]

Scary legalese and the content clause: Don?t be afraid of the license grant!
by Chris Meadows
11 Apr 2019 at 9:30pm
Just a reminder: As Chris makes clear, he is not a lawyer. I myself would suggest checking with one if you have the slightest doubt. – D.R. Legalese. Sometimes it seems as though we can’t escape it—even though we try. When we add new software or services, we’re deluged with dozens of pages of end-user […]

Today, I got a notification (PDF link) of an impending class action settlement involving Amazon’s audiobook subsidiary, Audible.The lawsuit being settled had to do with Audible’s $15 audiobook “credits,” which customers would subscribe to buy one per month. These credits expired after six months if not used, and were lost altogether upon canceling the subscription […]

Borderlands 3 shows 1-star protest reviews are still a problem
by Chris Meadows
5 Apr 2019 at 6:56pm
In 2017, I discussed the continuing conundrum of 1-star protest reviews, which were still haunting Amazon and the Internet Movie Database. Later that year, Amazon removed over 900 1-star reviews (over half the total number at the time) from Hillary Clinton’s new book. Even when they aren’t directly related to ebooks, 1-star reviews given for […]

The Oscars and ebooks: The antitrust connection
by Chris Meadows
3 Apr 2019 at 3:51pm
Although we are an ebook blog, issues in other new media can make for interesting comparisons to those that ebooks face, or have faced. And I can see some interesting parallels in the news that just came out about a possible antitrust concern pertaining to how the Academy Awards deals with Netflix. If you haven’t […]

On the website of the current incarnation of pulp SF magazineAmazing Stories, publisher Steve Davidson discusses in detail why clearing copyright for stories that appeared in old issues of the magazine can be so terribly difficult.

?Meme Ban? Copyright Directive passes EU Parliament
by Chris Meadows
26 Mar 2019 at 6:18pm
Remember that controversial EU Copyright Directive whose critics say amounts to a “meme ban” and link tax? Unfortunately, it passed the EU Parliament today in its entirety. Now the EU’s individual members have until 2021 (in theory, though some may take longer) to approve their own individual copyright legislation to implement the Directive’s terms. The […]

by Chris Meadows
26 Mar 2019 at 10:14am
Today I ran across the story of an established writer who was moved to write an unauthorized Narnia novel, as a labor of love. British writer Francis Spufford, author of the award-winning 2016 book Golden Hill, wrote the fanfic after his daughter asked him to write something she would want to read—and because he was […]

by Chris Meadows
25 Mar 2019 at 8:43pm
Bounding into Comics reports on SF/fantasy author Fonda Lee‘s recentTwitter tirade against bookstores devoting multiple shelves to dead bestselling authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Robert Jordan, and leaving fewer shelves left over for her, or other lesser-known modern writers. This is what modern fantasy writers are up against. In my local B&N, most authors […]

by David Rothman
13 Mar 2019 at 2:55pm
Donald Trump hasn’t much use for books—except a precious few such as Trump: The Art of the Deal and other ghosted masterpieces. He converted the walnut-paneled library room in the old Marjorie Merriweather Post mansion at Mar-a-Lago into a bar with his portrait.Perhaps this was just part of the transition to a club, but Trump […]
