Go, Read: Bob Kohn NYT Op-Ed On Amazon Vs. Hachette

I'm operating out of my depth with this one so I can't tell you anything other than that this op-ed piece at the New York Times seems reasonable on a first read, and that it ties in Apple's effect on that marketplace and the anti-trust settlement between the DOJ and the big publishers. If it's nonsense, I guess it's comprehensive nonsense. I still think the keys for comics people is more in seeing how Amazon will work to get what it wants and how what it wants might be changed by pressure to become more profitable. Me, I'm never buying anything again.
