PayPal, You've Met Your Match: Erotica Writers
Mark Coker of Smashwords became the leader of indie e-book writers — including some with dirty minds — in a fight against censorship and PayPal. He also has strong feelings about the DOJ's e-book pricing lawsuit. Mark Coker is the CEO of Smashwords, an e-book publishing and distribution platform. Coker recently won a highly publicized battle against PayPal, which briefly refused to work with Smashwords unless Coker removed certain naughty titles from the site. Fast Company caught up with Coker and learned, among other things, that writers of incest erotica can be very articulate.
