Ο αντίλογος για την ενιαία τιμή βιβλίου

Ο αντίλογος για την ενιαία τιμή βιβλίου | Libraries, more Libraries and Librarians | Scoop.it
Τη Δευτέρα 13 Ιανουαρίου η Ένωση Ελληνικού Βιβλίου (ΕΝ.ΕΛ.ΒΙ.), ο Σύλλογος Εκδοτών Βιβλίου Αθηνών (Σ.Ε.Β.Α.), ο Σύνδεσμος Εκδοτών Βιβλίου (Σ.ΕΚ.Β.), η Πανελλήνια Ομοσπονδία Εκδοτών Βιβλιοπωλών (ΠΟΕΒ) και η Εταιρεία Συγγραφέων πραγματοποίησαν...

Katerina Toraki's curator insight, January 19, 2014 7:14 AM

Φοβάμαι ότι ο αντίλογος εξυπηρετεί ίδιους σκοπούς με αυτούς που επικαλείται για τους υπόλοιπους. Και φυσικά δεν απαντάει επί της ουσίας τι γίνεται με τα μικρά βιβλιοπωλεία (που, καλώς κάνουν και ξεφυτρώνουν εδώ κι εκεί) και ούτε με τους αναγνώστες, με τους βιβλιόφιλους ή με τους δυνητικούς βιβλιόφιλους τέλος πάντων. Γιατί δεν τα βρίσκουν μεταξύ τους οι εκδότες και βιβλιοπώλες, ώστε να μην υπάρχει αυτός ο ανταγωνισμός; Μήπως ο αντίλογος γίνεται για να γίνεται; Αυτή τη στιγμή, πάρα πολύ συχνά, πάμε στα διάφορα βιβλιοπωλεία, βλέπουμε, δεν αγοράζουμε αλλά πάμε σε ένα από εκείνα τα βιβλιοπωλεία που ξέρουμε ότι έχουν χαμηλότερη τιμή (για τα προ των δύο ετών βέβαια, προφανώς ο αντιλέγων θα ήθελε να μπορεί να έχει έκπτωση και στα νέα βιβλία). Για μα ςτους "πελάτες" εξυπηρετεί η ενιαία τιμή και ας βρούν το θεσμικό και δεοντολογικό πλαίσιο για ένα υγιή ανταγωνισμό, γιατί όντως αυτά που αναφέρονται είναι σοβαρά και σε σημεία μου θυμίζουν  το περίφημο "το νόμιμο είναι και ηθικό"!!!
