Have you heard the latest? The Justice Department is considering bringing a lawsuit against Apple and several other retailers for colluding with publishers to keep ebook prices high. It all stems from the new pricing model. Publishers used to sell books to retailers and then the retailers set competitive prices. No more - publishers set the prices for ebooks, and retailers take a 30% cut. The deal was first struck with Apple, and then quickly signed by Amazon, B&N, etc. It results in the same price everywhere, no competition, and no ability of the retailer to lower prices. And that's not America. That's not even Canada. It's almost certain that the DoJ interest will result in a freer market - and lower prices on ebooks. Soon, retailers will probably have the ability to set their prices on ebooks. Amazon already takes losses on many paper books to drive people to its site. If it had the ability to make its Kindle pass the iPad in popularity, how low do you think they will set ebook prices? I for one, can't wait!
