Supreme Court May Decide Boobies Case

There’s a lot here in this story. There’s a couple of fifteen year old girls who were barred from handing out breast cancer awareness bracelets by their school district. There’s the much debated trend in breast cancer awareness campaigns to skew to a focus on the sexual appeal of breasts rather than the saving of lives as the motivating factor. There’s the parents who thought that this was a violation of their daughters’ First Amendment rights that was worth taking it all the way to a federal appeals court.

But mostly, there’s the undeniably delightful idea that a Supreme Court justice of America might say the word “boobies” on the record during a session.

If This Lawsuit Succeeds, It Could Break Amazon’s Dominance of the eBook Market

The new and growing market for eBooks has allowed companies to call into question some of the basic and universal characteristics of reading and owning books. That you can loan them to your friends, for example, or that by purchasing a book you’re also purchasing the ability to read it whenever you want, wherever you want, until you lose it, donate it, give it away, or wear through its well-loved spine.

eBook publishers have, to put it mildly, established that these are qualities of a book that they do not intend to carry over to the new format, which is to a certain extent fine, so long as consumers know what they’re getting into. But the eBook market also has other problems, namely accusations of price fixing, and, due to the combination of software that limits the kind of device a given eBook can be read on and the dominance of the Kindle over the eReader market, bullying tactics. A new lawsuit filed by three independent bookstores is looking to strike at the heart of the problem: the insistance of eReader makers that their books should not be readable on other devices.
