From: "Michael S. Hart" <HART@UIUCVMD>
Subject: Suggested Subjects for Discussion
I would like to propose the following subjects for discussion:
1. The relationship between copyright royalties and price of media.
i.e. If the price of producing a book is cut in half, what will
happen to the price the copyright holder is paid?
2. What happens when public domain texts hit the electronic market?
3. What will happen happen when the combined price of media, etexts
and distribution is such that anyone with a computer will easily
afford a private library comparable to the Library of Congress?
Thank you for your interest,
