Fair enough, although I would have to ask how many people (in general - not here) even bother to look how much the paper copy is when buying an ebook.

Most of my purchases were from Kobo or, alas, BOB so I never saw the paper price. I also never look at the price of a CD when getting an mp3. I suspect I am not alone in this, or even in the minority, many people buy it depending on if the price is right for them - not if they can get it in a different format for less.

There is probably a discussion going on at TreeRead Forums (made up name) how people refuse to buy a paperback if the ebook is cheaper.
