I can’t believe a company of the size and sophistication of Amazon could sell a book, by best-selling author Seth Godin, without his permission AND pass it off as new. Quality control? Check it out on Seth’s Blog
I didn’t authorize this book to be published, I have no idea who the publisher is and I certainly didn’t ask Amazon to email anyone.
Do download the ebook (for free!) from Seths site. It’s thought-provoking stuff.
The problem is Amazon, and whoever posted the book up, didn’t actually do anything legally wrong. Seth made the mistake when he licensed the ebook licensed under a certain Creative Commons license that specifically allows for for-profit distribution.
