Publishers need to "stand firm" against digital giants

Literary agent Andrew Wylie has said publishers need to "stand firm" in the face of digital companies like Amazon and Apple or risk being locked into an insupportable business model that is unable to reward writers. In an interview with BBC Radio 4 "The World at One", the literary agent said publishers were moving to the demands of "digital distributors" such as Amazon and Apple. He said: "I think if they allow the digital distributors to set the music, then the dance will become fatal." - The Bookseller
