In Latest Volley Against Amazon, Hachette’s Writers Target Its Board
“Amazon is at war with Hachette, and it sometimes seems as if it has always been that way.
“As a negotiating tool in the battle, which is over the price of e-books, Amazon is discouraging its customers from buying the publisher’s printed books. After six months of being largely cut off from what is by far the largest bookstore in the country, many Hachette writers are fearful and angry. So this week, they are trying a new tactic to get their work unshackled.”
This feud isn’t helping anyone.
