European Copyright Leak Exposes Plans to Force the Internet to Subsidize Publishers

European Copyright Leak Exposes Plans to Force the Internet to Subsidize Publishers | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
A just-leaked draft impact assessment on the modernization of European copyright rules could spell the end for many online services in Europe as we know them. The document's recommendations foreshadow new a EU Directive on copyright to be introduced later this year, that will ultimately bind each of the European Union's 28 member states. If these recommendations by the European Commission are put in place, Europe's Internet will never be the same, and these impacts are likely to reverberate around the world.

Breaking News: PRH Still Doesn't Like the Subscription eBook Model (The Fools!) 

Breaking News: PRH Still Doesn't Like the Subscription eBook Model (The Fools!)  | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Penguin Random House has in the past denied that readers want an ebook subscription service. What with Kindle Unlimited now paying authors and publishers more than the Nook Store, and possibly even more than Kobo or Google, that excuse was getting a little thin, but recently PRH changed its tune. The global CEO of Penguin Random House, Markus Dohle, was speaking at the Global Top 50 Publishing Summit at Beijing International Book Fair in China earlier this week . According to The Bookseller, Dohle said that: PRH had not signed its titles up for any subscription services, such as Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited, Mofibo or Scribd, because the ‘all you can eat’ models threaten to “devalue” intellectual property (IP) at a time when most authors can barely afford to earn a living. In the US, Dohle said 40% of the readership accounted for 85% of publishers’ revenue, so "heavy readers" switching to subscription models would have a “huge impact” on the industry.

If they became popular, they would ultimately lead to "lower prices" [...]
