Librarians, publishers, performers use fair use to liven up virus isolation
by Chris Meadows
28 Mar 2020 at 9:51am
As CORVID-19 closes schools and sequesters adults and children alike in their homes, fair use is starting to take on much greater significance in allowing libraries and performers to provide online services to children. The School Library Journal covers a statement released by a number of education and public librarians, contending that this kind of […]

Book distributor Ingram continues to operate during coronavirus shutdowns?but...

24 Mar 2020 at 6:46pm
Publishers Weekly reports that Ingram Content Group, the US's largest remaining book distributor, is pledging to do all it can to help the publishing industry through the coronavirus crisis. The company has indicated that it will be staying open during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders that are shuttering "non-essential" businesses, because it qualifies as an essential business under the exceptions listed on the shelter-in-place orders.

For comic shops, corona is a supervillain they can?t easily battle

While bookstores and movie theaters are already in precarious positions, comic book stores may have it even worse. The Hollywood Reporter reports that as more and more areas begin requiring mandatory closures of non-essential businesses, comic book stores will definitely feel the pinch. But forced closure may only be the beginning of comic shops' woes.

Corona could hit movie theaters harder than bookstores
by Chris Meadows

While movie theaters are not directly related to books and ebooks, the issues facing movie theaters in the present day because of streaming have a lot of parallels to the ones facing bookstores because of ebooks. I've touched on this a couple of times over the last few years, especially in light of the MoviePass discount movie ticket subscription program. In light of the changes to society prompted by the Corona virus, it's time to look again.

The Bookseller reports that in a memo to employees, Barnes & Noble CEO James Daunt warned that if stores had to close down due to Coronavirus protective measures, employee layoffs were probable. He explained that employees would use Paid Time Off, then employees with at least 1 year seniority would receive up to two weeks of pay; employees of less than six months would be laid off.

Being social in corona isolation with video calling and watch parties
by Chris Meadows
21 Mar 2020 at 7:38pm
In time of quarantine, it's tempting to retreat into those things you can do by yourself at home?reading ebooks, for example, or watching movies, or playing computer games. Things to keep yourself busy. But we are also social creatures. Without meaningful interaction with other people, it can be hard to keep our spirits up. But what do you do when it isn't safe to interact with people in person?

Stuck at home? Entertain or educate yourself for free

20 Mar 2020 at 5:20pm
Publishers, studios, and other media agencies are providing free offerings to give people plenty to do to ride out the Corona lockdowns?as well as tools to assist self-education or learning at home. Here are a few of them I've noticed.

Will in-person retail go the way of the dinosaur?
by Chris Meadows
19 Mar 2020 at 7:29am
It?s probably too early to be sure just what the true long-term impact of Coronavirus is going to be, but it has the potential to reshape our society with a speed and thoroughness not seen since the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 unexpectedly plunged us into World War II.

Coronavirus social distancing pressures prompt end to Macmillan library ebook...
by Chris Meadows
18 Mar 2020 at 9:33pm
Macmillan CEO John Sargent announces that, effective this Friday, Macmillan will be ending its eight-week embargo on the release of new ebooks and audiobooks to libraries. It will also be "lowering some ebook prices on a short-term basis to help expand libraries [sic] collections in these troubled times."

Ebooks and the coronavirus?and a related free classic by Mary Shelley
by David Rothman
13 Mar 2020 at 5:59pm
My sympathy to the thousands of victims of the coronavirus. The ripples are spreading. The Library of Congress, the New York Public Library and other libraries are shutting down for now. And librarians are debating over how long they should quarantine returned books. Bookstores may see fewer customers. South by Southwest (SXSW), the Austin festival […]

Automatically generating every melody probably won?t solve music plagiarism l...
by Chris Meadows
28 Feb 2020 at 2:17pm
Music suffers from a unique copyright problem. The limited number of possible note combinations that make up melodies means it’s easy for new songs to duplicate existing songs unintentionally, leaving unwitting composers open to plagiarism lawsuits. A pair of musician/coders, one of whom is also a lawyer, think that they’ve found a solution. The idea […]

SCP Foundation under legal threat by Russian troll
by Chris Meadows
30 Jan 2020 at 9:22pm
An online writing collective going back 13 years is under legal threat by a Russian IP troll. The SCP Foundation is raising money for a legal defense after Russian Andrey Duksin filed for a trademark on SCP in the Eurasian Customs union and began issuing threats against the site’s Russian affiliate and stores selling merchandise […]

New ereader devices: wishes and openness
by Chris Meadows
9 Jan 2020 at 11:50am
Ran across a couple of stories lately about new ebook reader devices. Actually, only one of them was about real devices, but the other one was just as interesting. On his Medium blog, writer Sumit Garg wishes for a new kind of ereader device in 2020. If you boiled down his list of wants, it […]

Is Macmillan justified in windowing new-release library ebooks?
by Chris Meadows
8 Jan 2020 at 7:53pm
For the last few months, I’ve been watching the story unfold of publisher Macmillan’s decision to start windowing new-release ebook sales to libraries. Given that it’s coming up on six months with no change, it doesn’t seem likely there’s an end in sight. In July of last year, John Sargent of Macmillan dropped a bombshell […]
