Cory Doctorow’s got a shiny looking official website for his new commercial audiobook. Little Brother comes out today!
“My deal with Random House is that they’re absolutely not allowed to sell the book with DRM on it, which, sadly, means that Audible (the largest audiobook store in the world) won’t carry it — they insist on selling books with DRM, even when authors and publishers don’t want it.”
Listening Library (a division of Random House) has retailer deal with Zipidee, and here’s their Little Brother widget (it won’t show up in the RSS feed so click through to see it):
“The audiobook comes with my own sampling license: once you own it, you’re free to take up to 30 minutes’ worth of material from it and remix and then redistribute it as much as you like, provided that you do so on a noncommercial basis, make sure that it’s clear that this is a remix and not the original, and make sure that you tell people where to find the original. This is in addition to all the fair use remixing that you’re allowed to do without my permission (of course!).”
