E-book sales aren't falling: Amazon is winning, publishers are losing - Fortune Sep 2015
"So it’s not so much that the market itself is growing or shrinking by large amounts, it’s more that some within that market are winning while others are losing. That’s a very different picture than the one the New York Times story painted."

Has white space access come of age?
"Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) is a concept whose time has come, according to a new e-book by William Webb, CEO of the Weightless Special Interest Group." "Under the Ofcom rules, a WSD could reduce its power level to operate safely in channels where full power would not be allowed. This more flexible approach has a profound effect on white space availability, Webb explains..." “Time has shown that the Ofcom approach is quite difficult to implement,” Webb told PolicyTracker. As a result, he believes it would be pragmatic for regulators beginning on white space regulation to follow the simpler US approach initially." "According to Webb, a better approach would be to allow higher levels of access at first, with device power levels revised downwards if interference occurs. "

Amazon's Kindle winning battle, but Adobe poised to win eBook war | The Industry Standard
"Though Adobe may balk at the comparison, its role in the eBook market is similar to Microsoft's in the PC market: a builder of a semi-open ecosystem of partners to whom it sells publishing tools.
In this analogy, Amazon.com is like Apple: successful, but secretive, with a reliance on proprietary formats like the Kindle's native AZW that creates customer hassle and lock-in."
