Oooh, *now* we're looking at potential claims of illegal price-fixing, as Apple & Amazon both try to insist on "no competitor may have lower prices" contracts.

publishers are reluctant to sign three-year contracts because the digital book world is changing so rapidly
Ya think? Nice to know publishers' brains *do* kick in at some point in the discussion.
Quote:
If Amazon does stop directly selling books from some publishers, many of those books will still be available from outside sellers that use Amazon’s site as a storefront.
Technically, yes. But removing the direct Amazon sale option may change how the books show up in searches & listings, and Amazon may have the (legal & technical) ability to remove or limit access to those titles.
