Where’s Amazon’s Spine? Don’t give up on Kindle-Talk!

According to the WSJ, Amazon is conceding audio rights with the Kindle II.  They are going to allow authors and publishers the ability to opt-out of the text-to-speech future.   I am very close to buying the Kindle and this was a compelling feature!  I get that the publishers are worried about the premium that they get from the audio version of the book… but what about the customer?  Amazon insists that the feature is legal because “no copy is made, no derivative work is created” where’s Lawrence Lessig when you need him?
