HarperCollins CEO Condemns Wylie Agency

The Bookseller is reporting this morning that HarperCollins is the latest large publishing house to voice its opposition to moves by the Wylie Agency to lauch a digital publishing imprint. The Bookseller piece quotes HarperCollins CEO, Victoria Barnsley:

“HC will vigorously protect its rights and our authors’ interests by ensuring their work gets to the broadest possible audience. The only winners in this are Amazon.”
The main criticism of the Wylie Agency from publishers and retailers is their decision to limit the availability of e-books to Amazon’s Kindle Store. Random House has already declared that it will not now deal with the Wylie Agency until the matter is resolved and has suggested the move may be illegal.
