#amazonfail

 

It’s not over. 50,000+ books have been restored to their ranking and search privileges at Amazon and an apology (of sorts) has been issued, but the danger still lurks unchecked: Amazon has a huge market share, and it can technically do whatever it wants.

DearAuthor posted an excellent blog this morning raising the larger issues: GLBT and erotica this time, and who next? For what reasons? Jolie Du Pre raises similar issues on her blog.

Me, I love a fight like this. The groundswell on Twitter Sunday proves there are thousands of people ready to name names and take action. It’s not just about authors and small publishers and indie bookstores – it’s about the right of the public to have full access to whatever it wants to read. Freedom of speech vs. censorship. Have at ‘em!
