From the Huffington Post:
Amazon, the world's largest book retailer, is once again throwing its substantial weight around. Having been forced in January to allow big publishers to set the price of their own eBooks on the site, Amazon is now fighting a rearguard action with the smaller houses. According to The New York Times of March 17th, Amazon "has threatened to stop directly selling the books of some publishers online unless they agree to a detailed list of concessions..."
At OR Books, the new start up by myself and John Oakes, we have simple message for publishers being menaced in this way: You are in an abusive relationship. It's doing little for you that you can't do better yourselves. It's time to say "IT'S OVER".
