We already have a case for Mp3 files, which most likely includes audiobooks, there's another thread here about it.
Not sure if the case will make it the "Supreme" Court, but I suppose anything is possible,
But perhaps we need a case to determine what exactly a license is, and if licenses still hold any meaning.
