Catch up on the industry news and opinion you may have missed this week.

Trade Publishing

  • I’m not quite sure how A leads to B here, but Bloombergs speculates the DOJ antitrust lawsuit could mean the end of DRM on ebooks.
  • Bloombergs makes a bit more sense in claiming Apple has a decent defense in the fact they were not involved in the collusive meetings between publishing heads at New York restaurants.

The New World of Publishing

  • Boyd Morrison, the first Kindle phenom to parlay that success into a trade publishing deal, had his contract canceled by Simon & Schuster.
