Many just don't listen to common sense. Their senseless rage against Amazon is boundless. They blame Amazon for copyrighting. They blame Amazon for bowing to the Publishers demands for high prices.

The real problem with the Agency model isn't a monopoly as we normally think of it, but of trying to control the book after it has been sold.
I suppose next the Publishers will try to control the physical book when you and I try to sell it second hand.

Oh wait, they have already tried to get a cut of the second hand market and the third and so on.

And yet some here are so blinded with rage that they kick the shins of the person feeding them.
