Hi Josh.

Quite some organization planned there methinks, ---- especially sinse there with probably only 15 or 20 currently working developers of audio games tops, you wwouldn't have too many companies ;D.

Also, methinks the legal changes won't be as easy as you suggest. that law you quote involving books only exists in the united states. In Britain up until 2005, the government did bugger all about access to books, and any charity had to perchice the publication writes streight out, or persuade the publishers to give them at reduced cost.

Sinse 2005 that perchice of rights is no longer necessary so long as it is in an accessible format, ---- however none of the charities really want to cross the publishers on this point, so if the industry says "no! we want blind people to buy an abridged copy at ten times the price" that is what happens.

Getting back to games though, i'd be pretty much willing to bet game producers would knock such a law on the head the second it was proposed, ---- remember, access is hardly game producers first option, in fact Nintendo are possitively draconian about their copywrites.

Beware the grue!
