As I explained they would not be losing money because nobody is going to buy the book twice under normal pricing. Getting people to pay more for the same book is a good idea.

I don't think the VHS to DVD example is a good one because you don't buy those at the same time and one does not augment the other in the same way an e-license augments a full rights printed purchase.
Not the large Agency model publishers - no. They generally fight tooth and nail to have every book sold at full price. They don't allow the retailers to discount ebooks, period.

You might get some of the smaller publishers to try it out.
