    I’d love to see Chris Kenneally and the Copyright Clearance Center make it easier to include books in their service. Quite a few in the academic press publish through Lightning Source/Ingram. That makes sense. A few simple check boxes when uploading a book’s files to Lightning gives them worldwide printing and distribution.

    Why not do the same with CCC’s services? Lightning gets a book’s interior content with the upload. CCC could easily acquire that content and offer it for sale to schools and others. No mess and no bother. Just a simple check box.

    If you want people to do something, make it as easy as the technology permits.
