89 Japanese publishers & tech companies kaunch digital publishing industry association

From Trading Markets:

A Japanese industry association for facilitating smooth cooperation among those in the e-book business was established Tuesday, headed by Dai Nippon Printing Co. (TSE:7912) and Toppan Printing Co. (TSE:7911).

The Association for E-publishing Business Solution, or AEBS, started up with 89 members, consisting of electrical machinery, telecommunications and printing companies, as well as bookstores and various organizations. Its inaugural meeting Tuesday was attended by Toshiba Corp. (TSE:6502), Panasonic Corp . (TSE:6752), NTT DoCoMo Inc. (TSE:9437) and others.

One detail that I find rather interesting is that a similar group was formed back in March, but that one only had publishers as members.

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."
