Submission + - E-Reader manufacturers seek waiver from disabilities act (mobileread.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Amazon, Kobo, and Sony filed filed a petition (PDF) seeking a waiver for their e-reading devices (such as the Amazon Kindle, the Kobo Glo, and the Sony Reader) from the Federal Communications Commission's recently adopted rules that would impose certain disabilities act requirements on providers of advanced communications services (ACS). The petition notes that while communications may be integrated into e-reading devices, it is not the primary purpose of these devices ("designed and optimized for reading digital written work"), and that "the theoretical ACS ability of ereaders is irrelevant to how the overwhelming majority of users actually use the devices."
