Giving Away eBooks

December 7th, 2006 by Hugh

One of the big problems for Exbiblio is that book publishers don’t want to give their content away on the web. This makes it hard to link an in-copyright paper text to its digital equivalent. Now here’s some encouraging news (discovered via Scoble). Joe Wikert of Wily books says that giving away content on the net helps build an audience. In fact, it does no harm to sales, and probably helps them.

    Hi Hugh. Thanks for highlighting my blog post. I wasn’t familiar with the Exbiblio company or vision till I stopped by your blog. I’m intrigued. I’d like to try out your system when it’s available. I hope you’ll keep me in mind as a potential tester or early reviewer.
