Latest Salvo Fired in Amazon and Hachette's Dispute
by George H. Pike
Last week, Amazon launched the latest salvo in its ongoing spat with Hachette Book Group over sales of Hachette books on Amazon.com, arguing that ebooks "should be less expensive" than print books. Hachette and Amazon have been engaged in a months-long contract battle over the terms under which Amazon would sell Hachette print books and ebooks. The battle has resulted in higher prices and delayed shipment of Hachette books, but more critically, it is being seen as a potential battle for future control of book and ebook publishing.
