A thesis on Amazon and the monopsony


This thesis on Amazon’s ebook strategy and some background about the differences between monopoly and monopsony is quite a worthy read.

I consider it a very interesting speculation about the future of digital-rights management (DRM) in the wake of the Department of Justice’s lawsuit against Apple and the ebook publishers.


Additionally, you can see, from the level and volume of comments that the issue is hot one.

As the world of publishing is transformed, understanding the “chess game” will help people with having influence on the ultimate success.
