Exactly. Ebooks would make it so simple to keep all titles available for future generations. If only everyone would stop trying to control them in a way to maximize their own profits and kill the the book for the future. What author wouldn't love to know that their book is still being read 200 years from now by future generations, or at least the possibility of it.
