(Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc's ( tAMZN.O) Some of the top U publishers discovered audible copyright infringement Friday, with the aim of planning a planned feature called ible Audible Captions ’which indicates the text on screen as a book.
The legal content was filed with seven members of the Association of American Publishers (AAP), including HarperCollins Publishers, Penguin Random House, Hachette Book Group, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan Publishers.
“Audible essentially wants to provide the text as well as authorizing the sound of books without copyright holders, although they only have the right to sell audio books,” AAP said in a statement.
The lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the Southern New York District.
An audible audience did not immediately respond to a request for views.
