Are you suggesting a scam (legal or otherwise) is okay unless the amount of money is big?

Harlequin has been selling a *lot* of ebooks.
(But not as many as they want to. The indie publishers are eroding their business which is moving *strongly* to ebooks.)

The scam, regardless of the amount of money involved is simply a bad business practice; in the current climate they are already losing customers, if they start losing *experienced* authors with established careers and newcomers are warned off they are not going to be industry leaders for long.

It doesn't matter if they're saints or devils: They are shooting themselves in the foot for what you, yourself, claim is no significant amount of money.

How smart is that?
