Comments on A Kindle World blog: Macmillan books to go back up soon? Apple DRM - Update

Harvey, you probably missed my reply to you on this in the "Amazon surrenders" posting. I'll just repeat that here.

Usually you can see the publisher's name and release name as well as the book's ASIN number on the product page for the book, by scrolling down about a third of the page.
It'll be on the left with the other book information.

The problem for some will be that Macmillan also is responsible for "imprints" such as St. Martin's Press, so it's hard to know when something is a Macmillan book.

I'd just resist best seller fiction over $9.99 rather than only Macmillan maybe if the reason is pricing.

Good luck. Sometimes the Kindle book product page has only "Kindle edition" where the publisher's name ought to be.

Ceci, I just got back. Thanks for that - no surprise from Murdoch.

Amazon will have to get creative.

You're right that there are no angels in this area at all - in my view both the authors and the customers lose out unless they all decide on something not mainly self-serving and what are the chances there...

They certainly got a massive dose of publicity about their desire to raise prices 50% no matter how nicely clothed the suggestion/demand.

Even if Amazon initially got the brunt of the ill will, ultimately it sure helped to bring some light on more of what is going on here.

Steve Job's video'd impromptu Q&A didn't help, and someone, I think it was Forrester guy on Len's The Reading Edge podcast who said it was a very interesting clip and that he must have been tired to say what he did as he did.

you are correct in that big mac will suffer and rightly so....but big'am is no angel by a long shot....in the end...it will be the people that generate the content we purchase for our enjoyment that will take it....in the end.

How do we determine whether or not a book is published by NacMillin?

Hopefully, their insistence on higher prices will contribute to a rise in the success of independent writers (much like mp3's did for independent music)... which is probably exactly what publishers are afraid of ... but I think they will be speeding the process/shooting themselves in the foot by insisting on higher prices.

I'm sure there are plenty of good lesser-known authors that may not be with big publishers like, say, McMillan, that I can & will read.
