outlineofash: A shark with a monocle and a pipe looks shocked. (Text - I Say)

You don’t just get Amazon throwing its weight around to try to hurt Hachette, you get Hachette throwing its weight around to try to hurt Amazon, too. Either way, both Amazon and Hachette feel the pain from things either one of them does. And, of course, anything that hurts Hachette is, in turn, going to hurt the authors Hachette pays…whether it was Amazon who did it or Hachette.


Read the rest of the article here. It makes a fair point in noting that Hachette hasn't been a saintly victim in this spat. My personal thoughts are that Hachette certainly doesn't get any sympathy from me, what with its recent past of illegally colluding to raise e-book prices suggesting it can play the greedy, soulless giant as well as any company. But I do feel super sorry for the Hachette authors caught in this mess.
