Hi, I like Kindle, but in the books I purchase I often have some urls (but I can't click them) that I want to copy and paste in the browser's url bar.
The problem is that Kindle always adds a reference to the book to the clipboard, and so for every link that I paste I have to remove the citation.
I read that this was a copyright related issue, and that you could only get 10% of the content.
Could Kindle developers add a toggle for "copy without citation for sentence less then 100 chars"-ish feature ?
Because I don't care of the citation, and plus I can remove it manually (so what difference does it make in terms of protection of the book?), and it's really annoying to remove this citation every single time.
Now I suppose lots of people are like me and don't care about trying to steal the book's content, but they just want to copy/paste for personal use, and those "innocent" users are paying the price of having this useless citation every time they copy/paste.
I believe that's just not fair for the innocent users, and that the maxbuffer of 10% is good enough to protect a book, and if the user wants to steal the book she can do so anyway, so it's only my duty (as a user feedback from the efficiency of the app's perspective) to suggest to Kindle developers to add that toggle somewhere in the preferences.
If this is not implemented, I can sadly only observe and endure this awful waste of time for human kind (about 4 seconds per link per user = a lot of time wasted for what?)
I mean, in terms of global appreciation of Kindle application, I'm not a marketing expert, but by disabling the simple copy/paste function, users might get irritated, and unconsciously have a bad opinion about this app, whereas by allowing the regular copy/paste feature, you still control the protection of the book by other means, but users LIKE TO USE KINDLE (which arguably makes all the difference).
Now as a feature it's not bad and even useful to be able to get the citation in the clipboard, but that should be an option (if you ask me), not
