Book publishers accused Audible of a copyright infringement

audiobook-3106986_960_720.jpgTBO reports about a new lawsuit initiated by several US book publishers against Amazon’s Audible.

As it is well-known Audible is a service that offers audiobooks. The dispute arose when Audible announced its new feature which will allow the narrative from the audiobooks to be transformed into a text that can be used by the consumers of their service.

According to the publishers, this act is against their copyright over the books because there is no particular license that allows such transformation and subsequent distribution.

The other problem is that the quality of these texts could not be satisfying because of technical issues which means that the texts will be different from the original works.
