Amazon’s control over ebook sales data should upset everyone in publishing

Since 2015, major news outlets, including this one, have reported the triumphant return of print: that “real” books are back, and ebooks have lost their gleam. Of course, it’s not entirely true. Yes, ebooks are doing just fine: Americans consume hundreds of millions of them a year.
