Another round of copyright wars?

News from the New York Times that publishers are looking into ebook editions for classics that don’t have their electronic copyrights nailed down. Despite being a Kindle owner, I’m a little concerned about the direction this will likely go. There’s already enough problems with copyright and electronic distribution. The most obvious being the “planned obsolescence” or at least inherent obsolescence that’s inherent in technology being applied to books (not a new move if you’ve know anything about book binding. You’re latest paperback? Yeah, it’s a piece of crap.) Still, another front in a war to nail down every right for every property. Then again, maybe I’m just being grumpy today and not seeing the bright side of all this.
