Blog post

I just put up a post on Scholarly Kitchen called "One World 


The topic is how the growth of ebooks is likely to change the way 
publishing rights are handled and lead to a restructuring of the 
book industry.  This restructuring has already largely taken 
place in journals, especially in STM.

In my view, "one world publishing" is a mixed blessing, but it is 
inevitable.  Once again, changes in the publishing world are 
being driven by consumer markets, which appears to be the one 
constant of networked communications.

The post was prompted by a liblicense thread from last month and, 
in particular, the comments of Toby Green.
