Good morning to all.
We have but a single news story for you today, albeit with two links. This one is from Wombat of the Copier.
A law school textbook publisher takes the next step in their fight for financial survival. Not only do students not actually own an electronic version of a book, they don't even own a physical book itself. I read here that some professors aren't happy about this arrangement but starting a petition doesn't seem like strong action to me.
What's the penalty for not returning the book? I don't see how the publisher has any means of penalizing a customer, even if the publisher has the right to do so.
No, we're not wading into the story about the Princeton student who wrote the editorial about white privilege. Nor do I want to get into the meta-story about the response to the story and so forth. It's everywhere if you read any academic blogs or news. Consider yourself privileged to be able to avoid it here.
Have a good Saturday!
