Some comments (collected by Sony) regarding Publisher Support:

“When we became the first major publisher to embrace EPUB as our sole production file we made a commitment to our partners to ramp up our title output to meet growing consumer demand. We’ve done that and are thrilled that Sony is embracing device interoperability. This is terrific news for the eBook industry and consumers alike.”
-Neil De Young, director of Digital Media at Hachette Book Group

“Sony’s support of EPUB is an important step forward in the cooperation of publishers and portable digital book manufacturers to create better experiences for readers. We’re thrilled with the upgrade; it provides readers with more opportunities to enjoy Harlequin stories on their Sony Reader.”
-Brent Lewis, vice president Digital & Internet, Harlequin Enterprises Ltd.

“This is great news for consumers because it broadens and simplifies the eBook experience. Readers can now get copyright protected eBooks from retailers or libraries and conveniently move them between devices and desktops.”
- Ana Maria Allessi, vice president, Publisher of HarperMedia

“We have invested a substantial amount of time and money in delivering our author's works in electronic formats with our partners at Sony and through other ebook delivery formats and retail channels. We expect EPub will expedite that process, connecting readers with the works they want to read, in the way they want to read, faster than ever before.”
-John Schline, senior vice president, corporate director of Business Affairs, Penguin Group

“We are pleased that Sony’s Reader will now support the EPUB open format. This new open standard will make eBooks and other documents more accessible and user friendly, and will ultimately be an important factor in the long-term growth of the eBook marketplace.”
- Doug Stambaugh, executive director, Business Development & Operations, Simon & Schuster Digital
