I'm guessing so. After all, if they were just paying the publishers a set price then the publishers wouldn't have tried to fix the prices as they would get paid the same amount. I also know that with self-publishing it tends to work on percentages just like with apps in app stores (iOS, Android, Windows, etc.). It's most likely a similar system.

What they got paid had little to do with why publishers fixed prices. They often got less per copy (for books out in hardcover anyway) than they did under the old wholesale model. What publishers wanted was control as they feared ebook prices dropping too low and thus setting consumer price expectations low.

Anyone tried to see if it's multi-use yet? I'm waiting for a few releases and if it's not multi-use I don't want to waste it.
