Legend or fact: Does Amazon own my e-Book when I post to Kindle?
We have all listened to rumours about e-publishing and the free theft of all your privileges. Sometime these rumours are spreading by someone who is maliciously, and sometimes they are spreading by someone who misinterprets the arrangements they have been reading on-line. So here is an article that' s basing on a query asked by a participant in my course, post and sale your ebooks.
Do you own my e-Book? Having seen an CBC Marketplace story called Are Your apps spraying on you, a college drowsy, which really allows the languages in the arrangements you are signing to use your goods and service on-line. Instead of saying that you do not use an app or website or any of the many things we offer on-line, shows like this are intended to show you how important it is to review these terms and conditions before clicking the "I agree" link and downloading or installing them.
During the course, the participant continued to explore Amazon, the Kindle application she used, and sell e-books through KDP. That was her reading of what she read: Everything published on their website is their property and, if you give it to them, you give them the eternal and inalienable right to replicate it in any way in any medium, including to reconstruct it, without licensing fees.
No. You do not give your book or your copyrights to Amazon if you become a distributor and are uploading your book to be sold on their website. Amazons are not editors (but they also have their own but that is something else). They are signing the same deal as some of the world's largest online booksellers, who all use Amazon to distribute their printed and electronic work.
The sale of your own e-books via KDP is a very good business for you as an independant editor! Determine the amount at which you want to publish your books (which determines the amount of the license fees) and publish your books whenever you want. Amazons will not inspect your work in any way except to have it removed from the shop if there are enough grievances about the wording, grade and orthography until you fix it.
It is a slice of softwares that Amazon made and chose to give you to browse e-books that have been released in the Kindle Store. Regardless of whether you get the licence to use or buy it, the licence that comes with some other person developing it says that you can't do anything with it, such as rewrite the source text or copy the trademarked parts to use it on a similar item that you yourself vend.
Copyrights to the products are owned by the publishing house. It' exactly the same as a textbook or an essay you are writing. If someone purchases your textbook (hardcover, softcover or electronical format), he purchases the right to open it, but he can't circumscribe it a little and resell it as his own.
If you select downloadable applications for installation on your mobile device, please review the stars first. See what others have said about the application. Eventually, you should carefully review the arrangement yourself and make sure you speak the right words, as they can be bewildering.
