Barnes & Noble To Share Reader Data With Publishers?
via Digital Book World:
At a Digital Book World conference earlier this week, Jim Hilt, vice president of eBooks at Barnes & Noble, said the bookseller plans to share more data about readers with publishers.
He didn't explain what he meant by that, but on first blush, it sounds a bit Orwellian.
Then there's this, from Digital Book World:
So, that's something I've never really given a lot of thought to. I guess it wouldn't be too hard for an outside source to keep track of my Kindle reading roster. I mean, remember when Amazon remotely deleted books by George Orwell from Kindles, and we though it was made up because, c'mon, but it really happened?!?
Today's discussion topic: Does the proliferation of eBooks make you concerned about privacy issues? Have any of you shunned eBooks specifically because of concerns about privacy?
