Legal "The Justice Department could sue Apple as early as Wednesday over alleged electronic book price-fixing, while settling with several publishers as early as this week, two people familiar with the matter said." I feel safe already. Update: ...and we have lift-off.

Nice to see the middle men and the point of sale guys colluding to up the prices. I don't see mention of the people who actually make this industry happen: the authors.

The first problem are these "middle men". Hollywood, big publishing, big media. The biggest benefit of the internet is that it should ideally kill these middle men off.

I've heard some stories about how ugly these middle men publishers get with trying to punish and bully writers who want to move towards self publishing with amazon. Thse guys just have to go.
