Kindle2 and derivative works

Reading aloud and derivative works?! Oh please! Kindle2 comes along and has text to speech conversion and authors complain because reading aloud constitutes a derivative work? Seriously?! Can I still read children's books aloud for storytime? Is there an exception for that? Hmm, is storytime a public performance? Are we going to have to stop that too!?

Thanks to Public Knowledge, the WSJ and the Copyright Advisory Network.
