Welcome to another jaw dropping installment of the Good e-Reader Radio Show! We missed you all profusely and vow to do more episodes in the coming weeks. Today on the show we talk about Amazon, Sony and Barnes and Noble’s new incoming product line and what to expect from all of them. We talked with the B&N legal team last week about the recent DOJ case involving the big six publishers and Apple, I talk about one of the motions in court they are filing to stop the settlement from the three companies that bowed out of the court case a few months ago. Finally, if you heard about LendINK in the news recently about pirating authors books, we dive DEEP into the issue. We outline what lending books actually means and how authors opt into the program, sometimes without knowing all the facts. This entire situation has spun out of control with many people for and against the website. Authors are seeing a massive army posting negative reviews about their books and a war is starting.
