This is Lessig's new book  http://lessig.org/

  I know this makes me a bad environmentalist and all, but I'm wanting to
buy Lessig's new book in hardcover format rather than the $free version
online.  I just checked Chapters downtown and it is $37.

  I'm curious if anyone knows of a store in Ottawa that already has it in
stock so I can pick it up? 300+ pages is way to much to read on-screen --
the convenience of a real book is worth the $37.

  I would love to see someone do a breakdown of how much is
production/distribution/retail (which has a marginal cost that keeps
getting marked up the more hands it passed through) and how much goes
towards the fixed costs of the author and publisher.
