EBook Soap Opera

Washington Post has yet another Story on EBooks, this one with a slightly different spin.

\"Our latest protagonists in this Internet soap opera are the giants of book publishing, those stuffy New York types accustomed to being masters of their own plots. This may be the first drama where they control neither the rights to the story nor the basic story line--you know, the familiar one where everyone gives away everything for free and nobody has a clue how to make money.Recently, the biggest players in the publishing industry announced a stunning array of digital initiatives in two areas: electronic book formats that allow titles to be downloaded from the Internet to portable reading devices, and photo electronic printing technology that is dropping in price and changing how some ink-on-paper tomes are made.\"
