I don't think so. Rather, the spyware will just be the new normal. Amazon and Kobo are already doing what this spyware is proposing. And Android, Facebook and to a lesser extent the iPhone are tracking WAY more information than any e-book spyware.

There's only a hue and cry about this because it's 'new'
