Submission + - Amazon Provokes Big-Time Ebook Rights Fight->

Miracle Jones writes: "The biggest NYC agent (Andrew "The Jackal" Wylie) and the biggest NYC publishing house (Germany's Bertelsmann Corporation, also known as "Random House") are no longer doing business together, at odds because of a big-time fight about electronic rights. Last week, Wylie started its own ebook publishing company called Odyssey Editions in order to distribute backlist books exclusively to the Amazon Kindle. Random House, calling Wylie direct competition, has declared they will no longer buy books from the agency. Either way, Amazon wins."
