Amazon Hachette Feud Could Change The Publishing World

What does the future hold?
Panzer went over to The Guardian site today. My bad black kitty boy found a post there about the future of ebook publishing.

In her post Jennifer Rankin looks at the Amazon-Hachette dispute not from the standpoint of ebook pricing, but from what will happen to the business models of publishers and how they will reinvent themselves in the future. As an example, HarperCollins has already started doing direct sales from their website.

Panzer says, "So ... did Amazon really push publishers to change or were they already planning to make these changes?"

There is a second section of the post that's a recap of the Amazon-Hachette dispute. Because of this, the post is v-e-r-y, v-e-r-y l-o-n-g, so bring a HUGE cup of tea.

To read what changes might be in the future for publishing, tootle over to Amazon Hachette Feud
