There’s a story going around today to the effect that Amazon has removed all HarperCollins ebooks from all Kindle Stores in the world.
I won’t waste your time getting into it, but that story is false.
While this sounds like repeat of Amazon’s past negotiations with publishers, the current facts suggest otherwise. I have several reports from the UK, Italy, and Australia, all of which indicate that HarperCollins titles are available in the local Kindle Stores.
Here’s one example which was sent to me by a friend:
Also, the half-dozen German ebook news sites I follow have remained silent on this story, and that tells us that they checked the German and other Kindle Stores and found that the ebooks were still available.
I don’t know whether this clickbait story was an invention or a misinterpretation of a technical snafu, but either way it is simply not true.
(Thanks Luca, Andrew!)
