A debate on the debate of e-book pricing at the NY Times. The back and forth relates to the suit against Apple and the publishers, essentially on behalf of Amazon. Leveling a monopoly to ensure a monopoly is a nice sign of the times we live in. So is the fact that a proprietary platform might win out in the ebook wars. Imagine if one company had the universal rights to the medium of the book. How this will serve readers is a mystery to me.
