Wired has a Story related to the Docster idea from OSS4LIB.org. The big concern at an book conference hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, was of course Piracy. They 50 percent of all new books will be electronic in form within 10 years and piracy could cripple the market. Let\'s hope piracy doesn\'t = library.
What I mean by that is this...
Libraries give books away for free. It would be very easy for a stupid greedy company to say that is now stealing, no more books for you!
No more libraries thanks to corporate greed.
