But, but...
The ebook *is* available to all.

Kobo is selling it.

B&N's "principle" is simply that it is okay for *them* to have a publishing arm but its not okay for Amazon to have one. Just as it's okay for them to have excusives but they have a hissy fit when Amazon gets a timed exclusive.
Yup, highly principled outfit, there.
