The problem is the industry doesn't consider Spotify a "Good Legal Alternative". They think that Spotify is making a million on their backs without paying at least 999,990. of it to the old Gate Keepers.
Yes, replying to my own post. I don't see where they have any legal complaint about taking the Horse off and the the cat on. Now if he had put a Ferrari horse on a VW, that seems like a trademark problem.
I don't think the wrap is what they are talking about. If you look at the video, before they do all of the add on things for the Gumball 3000 on the back of the car he had replaced the traditional Horse, with a small cat. Can't tell on the front.
There are butter keepers, that use a water seal to keep the butter from exposure to air. They will keep butter for a long time without it going rancid. It is a two part device, where the part with the butter goes upside down into the part that holds the water for the seal. You can get them a most high end kitchen supply stores. I think most are from France.
Amazon is not offering any deal to the authors. They are telling the authors what deal they are offering to Hachette, to try to help the authors during the period of negotiation, and encourage both Amazon and Hachette to get moving on the negotiation.
Sure Amazon is using disclosing this as a promotion ploy, but they aren't offing anything to the authors. They are just informing the authors.
