Murdoch Now Demanding Names Of Kindle Subscribers
from the this-will-end-poorly dept
Fresh off vague and undefined plans to put up a paywall on various news sites, it seems that Murdoch’s latest misguided target for digital angst is Amazon. ikonoclasm alerts us to the news that Murdoch is angry and threatening to remove all News Corp. material from the kindle unless Amazon is willing to hand over subscriber names and info to News Corp., despite having just negotiated a larger share of revenue. Of course, the subscribers themselves might actually like the fact that Amazon isn’t handing out their user info. Either way, it seems like Murdoch is suddenly hellbent on making it more difficult to read any of his content digitally.
