Morning Coffee – 10 September 2018

Morning Coffee - 10 September 2018 Morning Coffee

Here are a few stories to read this Monday morning.

  • Having long since forgotten that copyright is a monopoly granted for the benefit of society, the EU is getting ready to use new copyright law to kill off European news publishers. 
  • The only writers who should "write what they know" are the ones that lack imagination and the willingness to do research. 
  • When legal experts have to make up shit about Amazon in order to support their antitrust complaints against the company, it tells me that there's no substance to the claims. 
  • How an SF&F blog owned by a book publisher became a publisher - film at eleven.

 

About Nate Hoffelder (9903 Articles)
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."

  1. They lost me at “pricing below cost”.
    That urban myth just refuses to die.
    Just because *some* Amazon prices are lower than *some* competitors’ costs doesn’t mean they are lower than *Amazon’s* costs.
    Like, duh, right?
    Next!!!
