Gotta love the RPC's ruling on the Net Book Agreement!

It'll be interesting to see whether the publishers try their "we're not selling a book, we're selling a license" argument when Amazon's UK bookstore opens in order to try to fix prices here too.

Over the past few weeks I've noticed that the gap between the number of books (or the ones I want to buy anyway) available in the US compared to the UK is narrowing and that the price gap is widening.

For example, I bought an ebook from Amazon yesterday. Amazon is selling it to UK Kindle owners for $5.80 and to US Kindle owners for $9.99 (with the usual disclaimer about the price being set by the publisher). WH Smith were selling it for $8.21.
