The public good for books is not always served by setting the price as low as possible or to zero. Amazon’s monopoly of ebooks depends on it setting an arbitrarily low price, often subsidized for more popular books, in an attempt to strangle the market and increase profit.
Readers’ benefit of paying less for a book is outweighed by the reduced potential of more books being written in the future, by authors they like and by all authors. Paying $0 for a book doesn’t benefit a reader except as immediate gratification. It wastes the market.
Chuck Wendig is a good guy, y’all.
if I ever get to be a boss I’m not doing the “my door is always open” thing, I’m gonna close my door and you will knock and, if I want to, I’ll say come in
 
My door is always solid core.
 
Ha ha there will never be doors again or offices

Copyright has been horribly distorted by corporations, including the erosion of fair use. However, we’re in an era in which authors retain the © and often directly sell millions of unique published books (mostly ebooks). There is no Man who it is being STUCK TO.
All the people insulting Chuck Wendig (because he spoke out; he had nothing to do with the program ending) seem to be ignoring that the Internet Archive said the program was…an emergency effort that would end.
I love the IA to pieces. I was dubious about its scan-and-lend program (I think it’s legal, but their distribution method was effectively impossible to end a loan). The “emergency” program was just an unjustified taking of goods, affecting authors of all scales.
The Internet Archive’s program violated authors’ copyrights. It benefitted readers in a limited way: letting them have free access to work without authors being compensated…which leads authors to produce less work. https://twitter.com/ChuckWendig/status/1271400044567068672
