Okay, with so much talk about the Text to Speech and copyright issues regarding this. I would like to hear from the authors from this board. Do you have a problem with this feature? Do you feel you should be compensated for this?

An actor/actress was not hired to record the book. It's a software that can read any text....any text. It has nothing to do with any specific book.

If I were to say I was, I'd say authors, on the whole think the whole thing is pretty damn silly, the grounds are wobbly and the argument specious. My opinion is, that the guild is using it as a wedge issue to gain leverage over Amazon on pricing of digital content overall. It was an ill conceived tactic and redounds to the detriment of the guild and that of the authors that support it. I do not.
