Amazon NY imprint to sell its ebooks through B&N, KOBO, Apple, Google

http://paidcontent.org/2012/08/29/ex...her-retailers/

Quote:
Amazon’s New York-based book publishing imprint, which is headed by publishing industry vet Larry Kirshbaum, has signed a deal with Ingram to distribute its ebooks to other retailers, paidContent has learned. Amazon has confirmed the news.

The deal, with Ingram’s digital distribution arm CoreSource, will make the ebooks available to Amazon competitors like Barnes & Noble, Apple and Kobo — though, of course, those competitors won’t be required to stock Amazon titles.

Amazon already makes a couple of its ebooks available through other retailers. Barnes & Noble previously stated that it would not carry Amazon Publishing print titles in its physical stores, in part because it was not allowed to sell the digital editions. Now that Barnes & Noble will have access to the ebooks as well, I’ve asked the company if it is going to change its policy.
It will be interesting to see if B&N will now sell the physical books from Amazon NY imprint now that the ebook are available for sale at their online store.

Remember that back in February

Barnes & Noble has said repeatedly that it will not carry print books in its stores if it cannot sell the digital versions. This is the first statement Barnes & Noble has made about the matter since Amazon announced that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s “New Harvest” imprint will publish the print versions of titles from Larry Kirshbaum’s division. So I was wrong when I suggested New Harvest was a workaround that Barnes & Noble would accept without some other capitulation from Amazon.
Now that Amazon has capitulate, will Barnes & Noble stock the print books?

Capitulate might be too strong a word.
I would wait to see how the Ingram-distributed titles are *priced* outside the Amazon channels. If they're wholesaled, Amazon might discount them below the Ingram price. (To say nothing of the Nook or Kobo retail price.)
This might simply be a way to get the B&N and the Indies to carry the pbooks while making the ebooks effectively exclusive through discounts.
