Despite the power of the Internet, the vast majority of information still
exists solely as books, magazines, newspapers, etc. Current copyright laws --
and the lack of any mechanism built into the Internet for ensuring that the
copyright holder receives appropriate compensation for access/use -- seem to
militate against that material ever appearing online ... At least for free.
There are fee-based services that provide a lot of stuff, but they charge a
lot, too.

BTW, I read printed material *much faster* than stuff on screen. Maybe this has
something to do with the popularity of paper?
