Your Voice Now Copyright’d

Authors’ Guild claims copyright on a computer reading a book out loud through text-to-speech:

“They don’t have the right to read a book out loud,” said Paul Aiken, executive director of the Authors Guild. “That’s an audio right, which is derivative under copyright law.”

What the fug? I hope the cognitive dissonance in this guy’s head didn’t stop him from reading to his kids. If he has any.
