I was reading a mailing list, which (by its nature) has a lot of e-book authors on it. There was a discussion about how print publishers pay royalties (net versus gross cover price). One of the authors on the list (who has been published in print in anthology form) say that's royalties on the net are standard for print publishers. She even listed Tor, Del Rey, Kensington, and Berkeley as examples of print publishers who pay royalties on net.
Is she right, or is this just a confusion of terms? I thought this was not standard. Is it changing?
