Home / Memex - "sue me please" device

Consider this quote from As we may think:

A memex is a device in which an individual stores all his books, records, and communications, and which is mechanized so that it may be consulted with exceeding speed and flexibility.

Is it just me or does that sound like something RIAA/MPAA/EvilBookPublisher wouldn’t like you to do (to the point of suing you if you did)? Does that sound like excessive copyrights stand in the way of progress?
