News - Authors Guild Reviews Amazon's POD Policy

"Publisher's Weekly" has announced that the Authors Guild is reviewing antitrust and other laws regarding what it termed Amazon's "bold move" in its new position on POD (print-on-demand) books. The new move requires/forces POD publishers to use Amazon's "BookSurge" division if they want to sell their titles on Amazon in the traditional manner.

Late Friday, the Guild sent an email to all of its members questioning the motives and implications of Amazon's latest effort to dominate the booksellers' market.

We'll keep you updated.
