The future of copying

Deven Desai linked to this very interesting commentary on Kindle, Amazon's new(est) book reader. It is entirely worth reading on its own account; I would merely point out that it is an excellent example of commentary created entirely through copying and selection, coordination and arrangement. It is highly "transformative," in the language fair use cases encourage us to use these days, even though it is pure copying.

Apologies for the recent silence; I am trying to get other writing done, but I should be blogging the Reputation Economies symposium at Yale in a few days.
