More Dumb Reaction to the Kindle

Not to be outdone by Simon and Shuster’s CEO, the Author’s Guild wants to be declared the Dumbest of Them All,

“They don’t have the right to read a book out loud,” said Paul Aiken, executive director of the Authors Guild. “That’s an audio right, which is derivative under copyright law.”

That’s right. The ED of the Author’s Guild thinks that the Kindle 2’s “text to speech” feature is against the law.
