It is sad that the publishing industry is so scared.

I don't blame them, i am not sure if they have ever been profitable (with the exception of harry potter)

The question is how big a issue is this to users? You can't really sell your iTunes library also, yet consumers appear to be pretty okay with that.

Also I wonder if individual authors/publishers can put a different license on there content. Could Cory Doctorow keep a creative commons license and sell things through the amazon store?
