Yep, when they pass enough silly laws that everyone feels the need to be a "criminal", that's when it all comes apart like a cheap sack.

Just keep in mind this isn't some back alley, its all recorded away and the punishment for circumvention is 10 years per circumvention not 30 days.

I hope they bring some sanity to the whole DMCA but those "loopholes" are still only proposals by NIST and even when enacted they will only cover ADA folks with "medical neccessity" e.g. legally blind.

Circumventing to convert the format to a device that doesn't have read aloud is highly unlikely to keep one out of Club Fed.

I hate when "read aloud" is disallowed, since I'm just a southern country boy. Is "moving lips" also disallowed?

Personally, I doubt if you'll see any individual users being charged for the attempt to cicumvent copies of works to which they have purchased a licence, for their own personal use. The people more likely to be charged are those that distribute said books to others.

In the meantime, I guess it's lucky I live in a country which still respects individual rights and legitimate fair use, and whose courts have made it clear that they aren't beholden to big business.

The more people who speak out about these things, the less likely it is that individuals will be charged. Fair Use should be "fair", I will NOT buy a book twice or be forced to read it in a way that inconveniences me for the sake of staying on the right side of a law that makes no sense.

I agree Chris. I do buy every book that I convert and sometime I buy a book more than once - I'll have it in a paper format and I'll buy it again some years later in an electronic format and ditch the paper version mainly to recover available bookshelf space. Without ebooks, I would have no room to turn around, let alone add more books.

I don't think a publisher would be able to prove any damages from copying your own books so that you can read them on another platform. Yes, the actus reus vis-a-vis the DMCA is there, but there is no mens rea of harm. As far as I can see, the only loser in all this is Sony, by not being able to sell me a native BBeB format. To tell the truth, if they offer it in the connect store and for a true market price, I'll buy directly from them anyway to save myself the effort of converting and reformatting.
