President of Authors Guild sounds off on Kindle 2 in The New York Times op-ed piece

Roy Blount Jr., president of the Authors Guild, sounds off on the text-to-speech feature in Amazon’s new Kindle 2 e-reader in an op-ed piece in today’s The New York Times. Here’s the end of Blount's piece:

“For the record: no, the Authors Guild does not expect royalties from anybody doing non-commercial performances of 'Goodnight Moon.' If parents want to send their children off to bed with the voice of Kindle 2, however, it’s another matter.”
