Somewhat related to the usual talk here of IP rights, etc., Cory
Doctorow's latest book, _Makers_., is available in a variety of
formats, including epub for the eink crowd:


Capsule: Really, really down and out in the Magic Kingdom.  A prequel
of sorts to _Down and Out_ mixed with a healthy dose of Vernor
Vinge-ian innovation and highjinks as we start up the steep part of
the curve towards the singularity.
