Google Is Considering eBook Rentals, Now Accepts Epub3

Google Is Considering eBook Rentals, Now Accepts Epub3 | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

The mentions of rentals are vague, and there’s no hint of how long one might rent an ebook for:

The “List Price” allows non-agency publishers to recommend a price for a book on Google Play. The Specified Price is only a recommended price and may not be the final sale price of the book on Google Play. For books that you authorize to be sold for rental periods, currently Google allows you to provide a “Rental List Price” for each authorized rental period as a percentage of the ebook list price for the book.

Google has also dropped support for the wide variety of ebook formats they used to accept (Epub, Doc, XML, HTML, and even Mobi & PDB) and slimmed down their acceptable format list to only Epub, Epub3, and PDF (but only if no Epub is available).
