I don't have a problem with these folks earning their money, but they need to be realistic. even hardback books get to the used bookstore faster than the paperback comes out. they do indeed need a huge reality check
I think it is all about control. They cannot control the used book market but then can control the release of the eBook to try and maximize the sales
