First, this is very "last week," as all of this was announced last Thursday and people began discuss the EULA on that same day.

Second, and more importantly, the way you describe it above is actually wrong. The EULA of iBooks Author states that anything created using iBooks Author and published to iBooks can only be published to iBooks. Meaning that if you use the very simple, amazing, easy, and fee iBooks Author program that Apple has created in order to create your own amazing interactive book or textbook and you publish it for profit to iBooks, then the version made through iBooks Author cannot be published anywhere else. That does not mean, however, that you cannot publish the same text and photos as a book or textbook through Amazon or another publisher. It just means you cannot publish the iBooks version created with iBooks Author to another publisher. That is very, very different from what you describe above!

Apple still wants control over content. Tell this to the article writer. Has Apple loosened its control in the last week? Didn't think so.
