the dangers of eBooks&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/div&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;Once upon a time, in the age of the printing press, an industrial
+regulation was established to cover the business of writing and
+publishing. It was called copyright. Copyright's purpose, stated in
+the US Constitution, was to &ldquo;promote progress&rdquo;&mdash;that
+is, to encourage publication. The method used was to make publishers
+get permission from authors for using recent works.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;Ordinary readers had little reason to disapprove, since copyright
+restricted only publication, not the things a reader could do. If it
+raised the price of a book a small amount, that was only money; it did
+not contort readers' way of life. Copyright provided a public benefit,
+as intended, with little burden on the public. It did its job
+well&mdash;back then.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;Then a new way of distributing information came about: computers
+and networks. The advantage of digital information technology is
+that it facilitates copying and manipulating information, including
+software, musical recordings and books. Networks offered the
+possibility of unlimited access to all sorts of data, an
+information utopia.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;But one obstacle stood in the way: copyright. Readers who
+made use of their computers to share published information were
+technically copyright infringers. The world had changed around this
+law, so that what was once an industrial regulation on publishers
+had become a restriction on the public it was meant to serve.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;In a system of real democracy, a law that prohibits a popular,
+natural, and useful activity is usually soon relaxed. But the
+powerful publishers' lobby was determined to prevent the public
+from taking advantage of the power of their computers, and found
+copyright a suitable weapon. Under their influence, rather than
+relaxing copyright to suit the new circumstances, governments made
+it stricter than ever, imposing harsh penalties on readers caught
+&lt;p&gt;But that wasn't the last of it. Computers can be powerful tools
+of domination, when a few people control what other people's
+computers do. The publishers realized that by forcing people to use
+specially designated software to read e-books, they could gain
+unprecedented power: they could compel readers to pay, and identify
+themselves, every time they read a book! That is the publishers'
+&lt;p&gt;So they prevailed upon the US government to give them the
+Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, a law giving them total
+legal power over almost anything a reader might do with an e-book.
+Even reading it without authorization is a crime.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;We still have the same old freedoms in using paper books. But if
+e-books replace printed books, that exception will do little good.
+With &ldquo;electronic ink&rdquo;, which makes it possible to download
+new text onto an apparently printed piece of paper, even newspapers
+could become ephemeral. Imagine: no more used book stores; no more
+lending a book to your friend; no more borrowing one from the public
+library&mdash;no more &ldquo;leaks&rdquo; that might give someone a
+chance to read without paying. And judging from the ads for Microsoft
+Reader, no more anonymous purchasing of books. This is the world
+publishers have in mind for us.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;Why is there so little public debate about these momentous changes?
+Most citizens have not yet had occasion to come to grips with the
+political issues raised by this futuristic technology.  Besides, the
+public has been taught that copyright exists to &ldquo;protect&rdquo;
+the copyright holders, with the implication that the public's
+interests do not count.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;But when the public at large begins to use e-books, and
+discovers the regime that the publishers have prepared for them,
+they will begin to resist. Humanity will not accept this yoke
+&lt;p&gt;The publishers would have us believe that suppressive copyright
+is the only way to keep art alive, but we do not need a War on
+Copying to encourage a diversity of published works; as the
+Grateful Dead showed, copying among fans is not a problem for the
+artists. By legalizing the noncommercial copying of e-books, we can
+turn copyright back into the industrial regulation it once was.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;For some kinds of writing, we should go even further. For
+scholarly papers and monographs, everyone should be encouraged to
+republish them verbatim online; this helps protect the scholarly
+record while making it more accessible. For textbooks and most
+reference works, publication of modified versions should be allowed
+as well, since that encourages society to improve them.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;Eventually, when computer networks provide an easy way to send
+someone a small amount of money, the whole rationale for restricting
+verbatim copying will go away. If you like a book, and it pops up a
+box saying, &ldquo;Click here to give the author one dollar&rdquo;,
+wouldn't you click? Copyright for books and music, as it applies to
+distributing verbatim unmodified copies, will be entirely obsolete.
+And not a moment too soon!&lt;/p&gt;
