Barnes & Noble refuses to sell any Amazon-published titles

This recent news seems bizzare anti-competitive behaviour. Barnes & Noble will refuse to sell any Amazon-published titles via its stores. But surely Amazon is now a publisher, to be treated like any other. The nub of the gripe seems to be that Amazon “continues to pull content off the market”, which seems to me to translate as: “Amazon are better than us at offering services to authors”.

One thought on “Barnes & Noble refuses to sell any Amazon-published titles

  1. This is interesting. Does this mean that if you had previously published a book via Amazon, you might have some problems re-publishing it on B&N? I mean, so far I haven’t had any problems. I’m publishing everything in both places. Although I experience more sales on Amazon, so far B&N hasn’t whined to me. Thanks for the great news excerpt.
