David: I just helped you out by getting your book. The tactics of a dying industry are always more of a convulsion than a strategy. They see something that they don't really undrstand and they react by trying to use their remaining power to make it go away.
All they are doing, though, is making everyone expect that book prices should be lower than they can afford. Then, there will be a time where no one can produce books because of their shennanigans, followed by a time of true independence in book publishing.
Unfortunately, that will be followed by a time of someone figuring out a business plan to make authors slaves to big business again.
