Do you think MR authors will opt for the LendMe and Read in Store features?

And I wonder how the authors will be compensated for doing so.

It looks like authors don't get any compensation for the LendMe feature. The PubIt! T&C didn't mention Read In Store. I didn't see anything to indicate that these were optional for publishers. Compensation and royalties info don't seem to be available yet.

How do you register US rights other than by having the (c) statement on the "back" of the title page? Is it $20 to the WGA like is is for screenplays?

ITINs, 'international author' status, W38 forms, 30% tax withholding mandated by the IRS... and that's only the extra paperwork I know about.
Amazon and Kobo, can't remember about Smashwords all need those, too. I set in motion the procedure to get an ITIN the other day. I'll report back how easy/hard it proves to be.

You could probably put the B&N account in her name and use her bank account for transactions (if your daughter doesn't mind!). They'd want her SSN or tax number if you did. Keep in mind: B&N has a proviso that, in the case of refunds, they will take money out of the account to cover their losses.

It's good to see this site is finally up and running. I'm on their e-mail list and I've been waiting, but never heard from them. I'll head over and check it out.

In response to an email I sent to B&N, asking about specific payments/royalties numbers or percentages, I was sent a boilerplate email referring me to the main PubIt! page... and not even the new PubIt! page, but the old Coming Soon page. As far as I can determine, the service policy doc is still not coming up when you click on it, and no numbers are available. Color me unimpressed.

Add to this the fact that I'm reading a major publisher's ebook from B&N that has so many formatting errors it's not even funny, and I'm feeling serious misgivings about handing these guys any of my business.

I almost get the impression they rolled this out as a strategic move during their "buyout" negotiations, with little interest in whether or not it actually, y'know, worked and stuff...

I've heard one person say he was able to upload his books. I asked him about the royalty (because the "terms" page won't load for me) and he said he thinks it's 65%, but he's not sure. Apparently, the language is a little dense. I'm holding off on this distribution venue for now.

I'd advise him to double-check his output as well. Though I suspect output quality will be better than the OCR'd output from major publishers, he should be sure.

In the U.S., works are automatically copyrighted when you publish them. I understand that using the (c) and stating "all rights reserved" is a good idea, but I'm no lawyer so don't take that as a fact. Also, you may want to register the copyright with the U. S. Copyright Office, which you can do online. I believe it costs $35.

You can see them appearing now. Huge number of public domain ebooks for free.

Plus a good number of $2.99ers.

I see ISBN numbers starting with 294 instead of 978. Maybe that's them too?
