Fact Check: Amazon to "Collect" Sales Tax in All US States | The Digital Reader

Fact Check: Amazon to "Collect" Sales Tax in All US States | The Digital Reader | book publishing | Scoop.it
Earlier this week the American Bookseller Association celebrated a victory which wasn't nearly as impressive as they made it sound. The ABA would have you believe that Amazon is soon going to be collecting sales tax in all states which have a sales tax, but that's not actually what is going to happen: After almost two decades of a hard-fought political battle to require Amazon to collect and remit sales tax in every state that collects sales tax, Main Street retailers can finally declare victory. Come April 1, Amazon will be collecting and remitting sales tax in all 45 states that collect and remit sales tax. That number was reached when Hawaii, Maine, and Idaho recently announced deals with Amazon. “It is safe to say that the arguments that we have been making — about fairness and equity — have finally won out,” said American Booksellers Association CEO Oren Teicher, who pointed to the early and continued leadership of independent booksellers in support of e-fairness as one of the key reasons why Amazon is now collecting in all 45 states. “The campaign for e-fairness was a long one — longer than we expected — but now that Amazon collects in every state that [...]

AAP: Trade Book Sales Down a Percent, eBook Sales Down 17% Through October 2016 | The Digital Reader

AAP: Trade Book Sales Down a Percent, eBook Sales Down 17% Through October 2016 | The Digital Reader | book publishing | Scoop.it
Some segments of the legacy book publishing had good news in the AAP's latest month report, but overall the news was bleak. Trade book revenues were down 7.5% in the month of October, and as a result the industry revenues (for the 1,200 odd publishers which submit data to the AAP) were down 0.7%. Surprisingly, ebook revenues were up for the month (2.6%) but still down 17.2% for the year to date. O O O Press release: Religious presses and Childrens & Young Adult Books Publishers’ revenues increased for Oct. 2016 and for the year to-date. Despite those increases, the challenging month for adult books and educational materials resulted in a decline in overall publisher revenues of 9.3% in Oct. 2016 and 6.4% for the year-to-date in all tracked categories (Trade - fiction/non-fiction/religious, PreK-12 Instructional Materials, Higher Education Course Materials, Professional Publishing, and University Presses). Trade book revenues fell 7.5% in Oct. 2016 vs Oct. 2015, and were down 0.7% year-to-date. The cause of the decline was Adult Books, which was down 13.1% for the month. Interestingly, after 19 months of decline, Adult eBooks grew 2.6% in Oct. 2016 vs Oct. 2015; eBooks, however, remain down for the year-to-date in all trade [...]

Amazon Expands Counterfeit Removal Program in Overture to Sellers | The Digital Reader

Amazon Expands Counterfeit Removal Program in Overture to Sellers | The Digital Reader | book publishing | Scoop.it
Amazon is in the process of fixing the counterfeit problem that vexed buyers, manufacturers, and sellers last year. The retailer is expanding a program to remove counterfeit goods from its website this spring as part of a broader push to assure brand owners that the online retailer is an ally rather than a threat. As early as next month, any brand can register its logo and intellectual property with Amazon so the e-commerce company can take down listings and potentially seller accounts when counterfeits are flagged, Peter Faricy, vice president of Amazon Marketplace, said in an interview on Monday. The so-called brand registry, which had been in a test phase, will be widely available for free in North America, Faricy said ahead of his presentation on Tuesday at the Shoptalk commerce conference in Las Vegas. The move reflects Amazon's efforts to court increasingly important third-party sellers. The Seattle-based company takes a commission for retail transactions it enables, and it sells lucrative fulfillment and advertising services to third parties. Counterfeiters have sold faulty or discounted versions of authentic goods on Amazon, prompting lawsuits, including one from Apple, against merchants on the site. Other retailers have said they fear Amazon controls too much [...]
