    Amazon on a new censorship kick

      Well after an article in a UK newspaper where some reporter complained about how you can by books about taboo sex subject online, Amazon is on a kick to start censoring erotica again.


      Problem is, they haven't warned anyone, and they're being very random about it. Books that have been okay for years are suddenly finding themselves targeted. I don't know if B&N is going to fall prey to the same stupidity, only time will tell.


      But it doesn't mean a lot of people are going to start going elsewhere for their Erotica, so sales here may see an increase if B&N doesn't cave into the demands of a lone prude reporter.

          You should see what Kobo did. Yesterday around midnight they just pulled all erotica off their library. I only know this because they sent an email to everyone saying how they are going to look at each book to make sure it doesn't violate their terms of service.


          The reports I see for B&N is that they are considering removing some erotica. I'm against censorship in general because that I believe in choice and that if you don't like it then don't buy it or look at it.


          If all the major distributor censor you can expect other places to sell it to pop up and make a killing from what other places are unwilling to sell.
