*drum roll*

According to this article, Murdoch/Harper Collins, following Macmillan example, wants to “redo” their contract with Amazon:

I don't think Amazon will remove their books (I hope they won't anyway), but it seems that a new price war has just started.

If they start doing that, eventually they won't have any books left to sell!

This is odd, considering Harper Collins is in bed with CreateSpace on their Authonomy Site. I think Amazon will give in though because from what I hear and read over at Authonomy, a lot of their members have gone the CreateSpace way in hopes of HC taking a second look at them...
