Ebooks are inferior to even the cheapest paperbacks. Paperbacks are much less expensive than hardcovers.
I have no interest or sympathy for the publisher's side of things. Perhaps if I knew their business personally and wanted to support them on principle, I'd be willing to pay more for an inferior product to help them strengthen their ability to provide better products for the same price. Otherwise, I will not opt to pay more for a lesser product.
Im no dismissing your opinion, however in my case Ebooks a not an inferior product at all!

In fact i am on mobile read because i prefer Ebooks and value their portability etc higher than a paperback.

An Ebook is worth more to me than a paperback.
