Subject:   This is exactly what's happened with The Free Library

Jim Baen of Baen books has discovered exactly the same things with his experiment with Webscriptions and The Free Library. In fact he ahs seen back catalogue sales go up, and even weirder, in a number of ebook priacy sites, they tell people off for requesting Baen Books, telling them to buy them from Baen because 'Baen does it right'


of course, all Baen Books are published in open, unencrypted formats.
