Talk:E-book stores

Anyone have an opinion on whether we should move the free books to a page of it's own so someone can search for "free ebooks" and find it? Then we can link to the library and store pages as well. If nobody comments, I'll probably make this change, so if it's a problem for anyone, please say so. --Cmbs 17:39, 8 April 2008 (EDT)

Maybe we should add sections to where the shop is geographicly restricted? -- 06:31, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Interesting idea but hard to implement. Shops are not doing this because they want to. The publishers have a contract with the authors and often they don't have the publishing rights world wide. This used to be fine but in the ebook age we are seeing the problem. Enforcement was lax at first but the publishers in England started complaining and then all dealers that have these kinds of books are required to conform. I do not think we should try and single out the shops as being at fault here although at note in the description might be all right. I suspect the problem will eventually go away as new publisher contracts are signed. --DaleDe 17:01, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Just a note, I removed "" from the DRM-Free section. I was unable to find any DRM-free books on their site and I used the live chat box to ask about it. This is what they said:

"Unfortunately all our pdfs currently have drm attached. This is a requirement of the publishers, not us."
