Submission + - Amazon Battles Apple by Arm-Twisting Publishers (bnet.com)

bizwriter writes: Apple has upset the e-book pricing cart by agreeing to a so-called agency model, where the publisher sets the price and the seller takes a cut. This goes contrary to the degree of control Amazon likes, so although it apparently gave in to Macmillan back in February, it turns out that Amazon continues twisting arms. The problem the publishers face is that Apple has a most-favored-nations clause, so it gets the best deal that the publishers offer. If the publishers give in to Amazon, then they also have to provide the same terms to Apple.
