Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement, the UK branch of the publishing conglomerate Random House that it will not be following in the footprints of its US sibling.
Random House UK has decided to adopt a wait and see model. In particular, it wants to make sure that the UK government doesn’t decide that Agency Pricing Model is illegal. According to a Random House UK spokesman: “New commercial models in the fast changing e-book environment are constantly under review. Across our territories—not least in the UK—we continue to evaluate our options and talk to all e-tailers as it is our mission to ensure that our authors’ books are available on all platforms to all potential customers.”
