I think MR.RC hit the nail on the head. His suggestion that Bookcase makers sue storage companies, (which was quite funny by the way) shows just how slippery this slope is. I feel for publishers to a point, but the idea that 'in book form' means e-books is a stretch. Where does it end? Publishers should have been more forward thinking when they first developed audio books.
