The e-book market is growing very quickly and is about to undergo an enormous change. Some publishers are seeking to establish an “agency” model for e-book sales going forward, where they establish prices and the e-book vendor receives a commission for sales. One of their goals is to increase the amount of competition among e-book vendors by establishing the same deal across the board.
Do you think this is going to work? Will other companies enter the fray? Are there going to be many different e-book vendors or will a couple big players (Apple, Amazon, etc.) dominate the field?
