Jonathan Zittrain: 'Digital books are under the control of distributors rather than readers' (Wired UK)

Jonathan Zittrain: 'Digital books are under the control of distributors rather than readers' (Wired UK) | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Any device that is tethered to the cloud could have its contents changed at the request of a publisher, author or angry subject
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

"Digital books and other texts are increasingly coming under the control of distributors and other gatekeepers rather than readers and libraries. Though you can read a book through, say, Google Books, or on a Nook or Kindle, it's laborious to save what you see to your computer and truly make the book your own. With cloud-based services, one "master" copy of the book is always online, but that makes it vulnerable to manipulation or even deletion."
