Review: Nifty scanner eases farewell to paper; Washington Post, 11/10/10

Peter Svensson, Washington Post; Review: Nifty scanner eases farewell to paper:

"Because the ScanSnap is so fast, it's tempting to scan books as well. You could carry a couple of bookshelves worth of scanned books on the iPad.

Copyright law gets in the way of that vision, though. You don't have a blanket right to scan your books. This probably comes as a surprise to people who have been "ripping" their CDs for a decade. The music industry doesn't challenge this practice, but that doesn't mean it's legal, strictly speaking."
