Welcome to another edition of the Good e-Reader Radio Show! Today we talk about the effect piracy has on publishers and authors. Many people are feeling the crunch of dwindling revenue because of the rampant growth of ebook piracy over the last few years. Today I talk about how piracy is attributed to specific age groups and what demographic of people are downloading more content from file sharing websites.
One of our feature stores is EPUB 3, HTML5, and Kindle Format 8! These are new ebook formats that are soon to become industry standards. They allow publishers and authors to add rich media and interactive content in their books. This will allow for a experience that is next generation and not the simple text you grew up with.
