John Degen, a Canadian novelist, has a thoughtful post on how he has resolved to make his latest novel, The Uninvited Guest, freely available for download online. It his a short yet touching divulgation of a writer’s musing about copyright protection in the digital age, and about thinking out of the box. He says that the war is over. I’m not sure, but I liked the frankness of an author who writes books with his heart’s blood and his dilemma about coming to terms with the wired reality.
