ebook sales in a copyright free environment

Just got one of the eBook Reader here in Russia into my hands.

Nice thing. But not as fancy and cool as the amazon kindl I played
with last week.
The difference is that the kindl offers this great service were you
can everywhere download books and newspaper.
Much like the iPod with iTunes. Currently the service is just
available in the US.

However, the distribution of this particular ebook reader found a
unique solution. He just delivers it pre-loaded 3 500 books.
It's like buying a iPod pre-filled with Music.
(compare this with the US where a woman just was fined $2 Mill for 24
songs in the US)

About this blog

This blog is a close up on Russia and the CIS. I am not giving you the big picture.
I would anyway fail. I am too long here. So beauty & decay,
education & corruption, high culture & kafka-style administration are meanwhile normal for me.
So this blog is like a painting from from Roy Lichtenstein... when you are with your nose on it :) You will just see the dots, not gaining any understanding of the whole.

Most things will look strange in this blog. But you can be sure, I would not live here, if there would not be a lot of great things here. Unfortunately, the weired stories are more interesting to tell & read.
Don’t judge Russia on this blog, if you want to know the country, come over and take a look by your own.
