The Amazon stories seem to be coming thick and fast at the moment. Salon posted an article on Sunday written by Alexander Zaitchik called Amazon’s $1 million secret which contained the sensational allegation that Amazon donates $1 million to various literary and non-profit groups.

The anti-Amazon campaign - which a cynic might suggest was a (now failed) attempt to distract attention from the DoJ's investigation into alleged price-fixing and collusion - has truly jumped the shark.

Yesterday's news that the Department of Justice has filed its antitrust lawsuit against Apple and five of the largest publishers (Macmillan, Penguin, HarperCollins, Hachette, and Simon & Schuster) caused shockwaves in the publishing industry. Today, I break down the main points of the DoJ's complaint, showing how the Agency model led to an antitrust suit. I also look at the terms of the settlement agreed by three of the defendants, and explain why that means that Agency is dead, and e-books are about to get a lot cheaper.

Since the Department of Justice filed their antitrust suit, there has been a lot of hysterical claims of conspiracy, that the DoJ is working on Amazon's behalf. Other defences of Agency have claimed that it was necessary to foster competition.

I write about how people living longer will affect our culture.

I have a NEW blog!

A Soldier's Tales is still there and I'm going to continue it, especially with my military tidbits and indie pubs.

BUT

I decided to start a new blog focusing upon sharing the things I've learned while writing the Father Serra's Legacy series. It is called [ appropriately] Father Serra's Legacy at http://msgdaleday.blogsot.com

Stop by and enjoy. {I'm gonna cheat the first few posts and take them from the old blog and put them on the new.]
