Amazon & Macmillan - Monday Update

From today's Shelf-Awareness: "The Macmillan ban went beyond Amazon's website: reportedly without notice to Kindle owners, Amazon went into the devices and removed Macmillan titles from wish lists and removed sample chapters of Macmillan titles. This move was reminiscent of the retailer's quiet pulling last year of some e-titles whose copyrights were in question (Shelf Awareness, July 19, 2009)."

Can't see a problem

If Macmillan don't want to play nicely with Amazon then Amazon can simply decide not to sell their books if they should want to. There might be a point where that happens with some publishers in the future.
Not saying thats wrong or right but they both know it's a 2 way business deal.
