Why E-Readers Are Not Innovative Anymore

Why E-Readers Are Not Innovative Anymore | peace and ebooks | Scoop.it

Three years ago e-readers seemed to embrace new technology and give customers a reason to update their devices. In 2011 and 2012 we saw high resolution displays, color e-paper and the ability to read in the dark with front-lit screens. The constant innovation was directly attributed to the sheer amount of e-readers shipped between 2010 and 2012. Why the lack of innovation? e Ink, the largest company devoted to e-paper screen technology has become complacent.

Marco Legal Ya! El derecho a la lectura digital | Universo Abierto

Marco Legal Ya! El derecho a la lectura digital | Universo Abierto | peace and ebooks | Scoop.it

La Federación Europea de Asociaciones de Bibliotecas, Información y Documentación (EBLIDA) ha redactado un documento El derecho a leer en electrónico: Una política sobre el libro electrónico para las bibliotecas en Europa, que apuesta por garantizar el libre acceso a la información, la educación, la cultura, el ocio y los contenidos; considerando que la llegada del libro digital ha llevado a que la política de desarrollo de la colección puede ser decidida por el editor y no por la biblioteca. Por lo que propone que se negocien “Modelos de Licencia Equitativos” y que todos los títulos de libros electrónicos que estén disponibles para la venta al público también lo deben estar para su adquisición y acceso por parte de las bibliotecas al mismo tiempo que salen al mercado y en todos los formatos compatibles

La campaña de EBLIDA “Legalize it! The right to e-Read” quiere sensibilizar a los políticos y al público sobre los obstáculos que tienen las bibliotecas en este nuevo entorno digital, incluyendo las condiciones de venta de libros digitales y la incertidumbre del marco legal que se ciernen en esta área. EBLIDA pide a la Comisión Europea que establezca un marco legal para los derechos de autor que permita a las bibliotecas adquirir y prestar libros legalmente, al tiempo que garantiza la compensación a los autores o titulares de derechos de autor.

Qué tiene que saber un autor para publicar su ebook en Amazon | Universo Abierto

Qué tiene que saber un autor para publicar su ebook en Amazon | Universo Abierto | peace and ebooks | Scoop.it

Amazon actualmente tiene una cuota de mercado de venta de libros electrónicos cercana al 70%. En cuanto a dispositivos Kindle es el producto más vendido en la plataforma Amazon de todos los tiempos, aunque la mayor cuota de mercado la tiene el dispositivo iPad de Apple con casi un 40% respecto al resto de lectores,  y del 50% de todas las tabletas vendidas en el mundo. Paradójicamente esto también favorece que Amazon venda más ya que la Apps de Kindle está disponible tanto para el entorno iOs en iTunes como para Android en Google Play. Por lo que para cualquier autor que desea publicar es importante hacerlo en Amazon, a pesar de sus importantes inconvenientes y restricciones como son un sistema altamente propietario y monopolista. Actualmente Kindle Store, -la tienda de libros electrónicos de Amazon- y sus sucursales en Estados Unidos, Canadá, Reino Unido, Alemania, la India, Francia, Italia, España, Japón, Brasil y más, tienen en venta más de 1.500.000 títulos disponibles, 800.000 de los cuales cuestan menos de 1$ ya que la mayoría de ellos son obras autopublicadas.
