Readers don't draw a line between self-publishers and trad publishers

Readers don't draw a line between self-publishers and trad publishers | Writing Tips | Scoop.it

Consumers don't make a distinction between traditional publishers and self-publishers when buying ebooks, according to a wide-ranging new study.

 

The Book Industry Study Group’s latest report, Consumer Attitudes Towards Ebook Reading, also shows that readers prefer ebooks over print books in 10 out of 14 subject areas, including all fiction genres.

 

Ebooks have a big lead over print in all areas of fiction, covering romance/erotic, mystery/thriller, general, religious, young adult, science fiction/fantasy and literary.

Google prevails over authors in book-scanning U.S. lawsuit

Google prevails over authors in book-scanning U.S. lawsuit | Writing Tips | Scoop.it

(Reuters) — Google Inc. on Thursday won dismissal of a lawsuit by authors who accused the Web search and media group of digitally copying millions of books for an online library without permission.

The judge said the massive library makes it easier for students, teachers, researchers and the public to find books, while maintaining "respectful consideration" for authors' rights. He also said the digitization was "transformative," and could be expected to boost rather than reduce book sales.
