Jot: The Napsterization by Google Print

The chief executive of major publisher Bloomsburry expresses his technophobia over Google's digitization project that could lead to the "Napsterization of the publishing industry":
"We are being given an opportunity to undermine our industry. It may not seem inherently scary at the moment. But my concern is what this will lead to in 10 years. We are opening a Pandora's Box, and we have no idea where it will lead. We just don't know, once they have this material, what they will do with it."
