No ‘Potter,’ No Problem for E-books
Bogaty says the catalyst for acceptance of the medium will not be a major best-selling release, such as the latest “Potter” book, but rather several different factors that will lead to the ultimate success of e-books.
“I think things like a broad selection of books that consumers can use,” Bogaty says. “Price point is obviously a good thing. Good e-book reading software and devices is a good thing. A standard file format is a good thing. Fair DRM (digital rights management) is a good thing. I think all of those things are the real industry factors.”
