Big publishers weren’t happy when Audible revealed its planned Audible Captions feature last month.

Today, they acted on that displeasure: The Association of American Publishers has filed a lawsuit against Audible and Amazon, alleging copyright infringement.

The feature, as you guessed, displays text from audiobooks, a few words at a time.

You can watch it in action on The Digital Reader’s post about the AAP lawsuit; the post also includes a link to the filing and a press release about the suit.

We’re not lawyers, nor is The Digital Reader, but The Passive Guy is — and you can read some of his early thoughts on the matter as well.
