Read a book to your kids!? Wait, you don’t have the right, do you?

According to the Authors Guild, using a text-to-speech device to read a book voilates the author’s audio book rights.

Authors Guild: Kindle 2 can read books aloud. And Kindle 2 is not paying anyone for audio rights.

This is CRAZY. A low-tech equivalent is that you’ve bought a book, and you hire a person to read it to you. The Authors Guild said, “You can’t do this because you didn’t buy the audio rights. You have to buy an audio book."
