In what seems like a backward step, Penguin USA have stopped selling eBooks to libraries -
Penguin announced the cessation of sales to Overdrive Inc, a
Cleveland OH based distributor and major supplier of digital books to
libraries, citing concerns about sales being affected by lending eBooks. This seems odd though as publishers have never claimed that selling physical books to libraries have harmed sales.OverDrive CEO Steve Potash said that his company was still working
with Penguin to come to better terms and potentially continue sales to
libraries, but offered no further word on the progress.
Those in the know feel that Amazon's Kindle and its relationshop with libraries may have had a lot to do with Penguin's decision - The following comes from Paidcontent.org
