We've heard a lot in the news lately about publishers and eBook library lending. As you know Simon & Schuster and Macmillan do not provide eBooks for library lending at all; Harper Collins only allows a 26 checkout liscense model. Now we've just heard that Brilliance Audio is no longer working with Overdrive. Here is the announcement:
Effective January 31, 2012, as instructed by the publisher, BrillianceAudio will suspend the availability of all download audiobook titles for library purchase across all vendors. This change does not affect any titles currently in your library's catalog. You will not, however, be able to add any additional copies.
If you have questions or comments, you can reach BrillianceAudio directly at AskSales@brillianceaudio.com or 800.648.2312.
Please consider contacting BrillianceAudio to let them know how important providing downloadable audios for library lending is.
P.S. Guess who owns Brilliance Audio? Amazon. Read this article for this author's insights:
