Amazon bared all

Book authors should thank the US Authors' Guild - www.authorsguild.org. On 23 October online bookseller www.amazon.com introduced full-text searching of titles. Good. But the Guild managed to print 108 pages of a bestseller from the Amazon site. Not good. They complained: publishers may have given permission but authors hadn't. A week later Amazon did the obvious: disabled printing.
