It starts out, "Stop me if you've read this before . . ."
Along with other good points, Pegoraro joins me in arguing that the publishing industry is following the pathetic lead of the music industry in the migration to new media markets. Though they have not yet stooped to suing 13-year-olds for downloading pirated copies of the Potter novels, they have been aping all the music industry's major errors, and are endangering the development of a market that could be good for them and for readers. Anyone who has had the frustration of dealing with e-books that are tied to propietary platforms knows what needs to be done. We can only hope that the publishers will wake up before it is too late.
