Google always planned to give publishers more control over pricing than the established retailers. Amazon's pricing changes are also pretty well known. However, you should also keep in mind that the increases are in most cases for new books, it's not a permanent increase. A new ebook will be $13-15, and within a year will drop to $10 or so.
