What Amazon’s ebook strategy means – Charlie’s Diary
“I submit that, as with all other large corporations, you cannot judge Amazon by the public statements of its executives; they are at best uttered with an eye for strategic propaganda effects, and at worst they’re deeply self-serving and deceptive. Rather, you need to examine their underlying ideology and then the steps they take—and the actions they consider legitimate—in order to achieve their goals.”
I wonder: if Amazon “wins” this war, who will publish books? Amazon itself? What will that sort of thing mean for customers?
