Such a rise of audiobook summary services on the internet has raised concerns among authors, publishers, and other copyright holders. They may be seen as promoting piracy in the audiobook industry.
In response to these concerns, several major publishing companies have called for stricter regulations on audiobook summary services and for greater enforcement of copyright laws to protect the rights of authors and publishers.
Unauthorised versions of audiobooks in the form of pirated audiobook summaries distributed online have become a primary concern for publishers and creators in the industry. These summaries are often created by taking portions of the original audiobook and condensing them into a shorter, summarised version.
