MediaNet announces ebookstore platform for the UK, Canada

From the press release:

MediaNet, the leading provider of digital entertainment content, opens today in the United Kingdom the advanced MN Open platform which provides an API and a suite of easy to install Web Components for the digital delivery of music and eBook premium content. Customers can learn more about these products and sign up today at  MediaNet also opened its doors to the MN Open platform in Canada today.

This sounds like a good way to start an ebookstore (MediaNet has 200k titles in their catalogue), but I have an alternate suggestion: Kobo. They haven't announced a UK partner, and I bet they want one. Why start your own little store when you can sign up with the only real threat to Amazon?

I'm not kidding, either. Kobo is the only major ebookstore who are trying to expand across borders. Everyone else is hobbling themselves.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
