I wonder what that means. I can't imagine them pulling their titles from audible. Do you buy books from audiobooks.com, or is it purely a streaming service where you have to use their proprietary app?

Not a fan of audiobooks.com ever since I emailed CS and was told that if they stop selling a book it would disappear from your library of purchased titles as well. They may have changed this behavior (?), but that's how it was at the time.

They use a credit system to buy books similar to other sites. For listening they pretty much rely on you using their website or downloading to one of their apps. Using the Android app to download you get regular MP3's, but that's the only way I know of to get actual files you can use elsewhere. I doubt RB/Tantor titles will disappear from Audible, Downpour, etc.
