The Book: Terms of service

Matthew Battles has written a proposed Terms of Service for books. It highlights the strengths of printed books, but Matthew is careful to avoid any reference to print vs. digital. In an email he writes: “Whether in print or pixels, the terms of the public sphere should be taken into consideration.”

Amen.

  1. I noticed this: ” the (book) creator’s monopoly right shall be understood to be limited and circumscribed”

    Fuzzy copyright logic I would say…

  2. Something technical might happened here and my yesterday’s comment seems not to show up :-(

    I made a note on the sentence from Matt’s post:
    “the creator’s monopoly right shall be understood to be limited and circumscribed” and I contemplated if this statement is not too fuzzy when it comes to books?
    In both: print & bit ?
