+ - Apple refuses to carry eBook that mentions Amazon->

Submitted by nam37
nam37 (517083) writes "Apple’s digital stores are known for their strict policies and painful approval processes; even the slightest error can get an author’s work barred from the company’s ecosystem. In a rather frightening story, author Holly Lisle, who is known for her online writing guides, described her recent conflict with Apple. Lisle’s latest book, “How To Think Sideways Lesson 6: How To Discover (Or Create) Your Story’s Market,” was rejected from the Cupertino-based company’s iBook store because it contained “live links” to an Amazon website. After the author removed the links, however, Apple rejected the title once more, telling her that the company wouldn’t sell her book because it mentioned an Apple competitor. As a result of Apple’s actions, Lisle has pulled all of her work from the iBooks store and no longer recommends the service."
