About Nate Hoffelder (11036 Articles)

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:

“I’ve been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It’s a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog.”

  1. I feel like the rest of the question for the second article should be “Or May the Families and Publishers Who Didn’t Create the Work Please Profit From It?”

    I’d love to see copyright change to life of the author, cutting the “plus 70 years.” But I’m less concerned by “protecting” work the author didn’t intend to publish and more concerned by ensuring that corporations can’t profit from work that should belong to the world, at least digitally. That Simon & Schuster charges $12 for the Kindle version of The Great Gatsby should be a crime.
