"Google is essentially rewriting copyright law in a way that favors it above all other book sellers."
Copyright law is having adverse effects on society and business and needs to change. If governments aren't willing to move into the 21st century, private companies will inevitably have to lead the way.
If this process is indeed put back into the hands of governments as is being suggested, I don't see us going forward any time soon.
Also, I can see why Amazon has a problem with this, as it has products that could be directly affected. What are the other two moaning about, though?
