Hachette Vs. Amazon

14.06.08
A Hachette, através Tim Hely Hutchinson insurgiu-se veementemente contra a Amazon, após o mais recente golpe de garras do gigante online.

«The author and agent community has backed Hachette Livre UK in its terms dispute with Amazon, with leading agents spearheading a backlash against the online retailer.

The dispute has seen Amazon remove its “Buy new” button from key Hachette front and backlist titles, and drop books from promotional positions. In a letter sent to agents and authors last week, Hachette c.e.o. Tim Hely Hutchinson said he would stand firm against conceding additional trading terms, and asked authors for their patience.

He said Amazon’s sanctions were “creating a breach of trust between Amazon and its customers”, and its actions could “prove to be a catalyst for Amazon starting to lose its popularity with the public”. Despite advantageous terms, he said, “Amazon seems each year to go from one publisher to another making increasing demands in order to achieve richer terms at our expense and sometimes at yours.” At its current rate of growth, he predicted that Amazon would become the largest bookseller in Britain in three years.»
