Apple's dirty little EULA publishing secret | TechRepublic. Say it ain't so, Apple. The new iBook publishing app, that allows authors to upload their work and sell it, and competes with similar offerings by Amazon and others, allegedly has an even more Draconian EULA agreement than any of its competitors. Lawyers are familiar with End User License Agreements (EULAs); and, I'll bet, we don't read them in the same percentages as the rest of computer users. Unless, of course, somebody actually does read one and highlights the problems. In the case of iBook, Apple asserts that anyone who publishes content to it, and charges for that content, must share the charge with Apple, and may only publish to iBook. For authors who publish to Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Smashwords, and other sites, this is a non-starter. This is like a bookstore telling an author that it will carry his book in the store; but, you can't sell it anywhere else. Amazon gives authors the option to have better access to Prime customers if they give it a 90 day exclusivity period; but, Apple's EULA makes no such distinction. Check out the article for the actual contract terms. Just a little light bedtime reading.
