French stifle ebook market at birth

The French are planning a new law preventing ebooks from being discounted. If one shop sells it or the print version at full retail price, they all have to. How ridiculous. It’ll mean that all books are expensive and ebooks are no cheaper than paper books. Yet a new French research study speculates that… “25% of books will be sold in digital form by 2015”. Not when you have laws like that, comrade.
