Which is why the current and increasingly public battle over the book is so fascinating: Tech giants such as Amazon and Apple pitted against each other and the federal government, venerable publishing houses — long thought to be the Kings of the realm — fending for themselves in an uncertain world. Although EDC does not currently sell ebooks, it has seen its physical inventory bought in bulk from distributors by Amazon and then heavily discounted — a common tactic for the online retailer of the type that may have caused major book publishers and Apple to band together in developing a new pricing system for ebooks last year — a deal that has resulted in a high-profile lawsuit brought by the US Justice Department. Amazon argues that book publishers in particular must adapt to a changing marketplace or face extinction; indeed, many major publishers have seen Amazon as both a blessing and curse — a vast new method of distribution and a honeypot in ebooks, at the risk of doing business with a notoriously cut-throat company that could demand cheaper prices or change the terms of sale at any time, due to its relative monopoly. The tactic is a well-worn one: Undercut your competition as long as you can or until they are out of business, and then drive prices up. Image Credit: Whatswerves.
