Very Sad News; the death of davidfor

12:37 PM by PeterT in E-Book General | News

I'm not sure how to say this, but I've just heard from David's son (Declan) that David Forrester (known to us as davidfor) passed away suddenly on Wednesday, August 24th.

This will leave a gigantic hole in this eReader community.

RIP Eric Flint

03:07 PM by Critteranne in E-Book General | News

His death has been announced on social media.
For example, here is a post from Robert J. Sawyer.

Without him, there would have been no Baen Free Library. Not to mention Ring of Fire anthologies. And Ring of Fire Press.

Maryland Ebook Licensing Law Ruled Unconstitutional

08:50 AM by astrangerhere in E-Book General | News

From Rueters (emphasis added):

Maryland ebook licensing law is unconstitutional, U.S. court rules


A federal court in Baltimore ruled Monday that a Maryland law requiring book publishers to offer public libraries reasonable licenses to ebooks and digital audiobooks is unconstitutional.

In a victory for the Association of American Publishers, U.S. District Judge Deborah Boardman said that the law violates publishers' protections under the federal Copyright Act.

AAP, the book publishing industry's national trade group, won an order pausing the law in February. Boardman said at the time that the first-of-its-kind statute likely interfered with the publishers' right to decide how to distribute their works.

Legislatures in states including Massachusetts, Illinois, Tennessee, Missouri and Rhode Island have been considering laws similar to Maryland's. AAP President Maria Pallante said in a Monday statement that the decision and New York Governor Kathy Hochul's veto of a similar bill last year because of constitutional concerns "sends a two-fold message to other legislatures being similarly lobbied: there is nothing judicious about undermining authors or the viability of an independent publishing industry.

The Maryland attorney general's office declined to comment.
