Free reading

An editor assembles a book called The Best Software Writing from Web based essays on software and interface design. The book is published (typeset in sabon). A blogger assembles a page pointing to the original essays .This can’t be a copyright issue can it? I mean the originals all existed available for free before the book was published.

  • Can a collection of Web links be copyright?
  • Can the editor of the book claim some kind of intellectual input through selection and sequencing of the essays?
