SPAN Response to Amazon Policies

Scott Flora, Executive Director of the Small Publishers Association of North America (SPAN) has written a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and posted it online. You should read the whole thing, but here's a quote:
As we all know, a significant part of Amazon.com’s business comes from sales of books not carried by a typical “big box” bookstore, and that a large portion of these books come from independent publishers. It seems to be bad business to alienate the vendors who contribute to so much of Amazon’s success.

The rest is here.

Thanks Scott!

Great letter! Let's hope JB actually pays attention to what it says.
