eBookNewser reported last week that Random House had decided to wait on adopting the Agency Pricing Model for its eBooks sold in the UK. Now it looks like that report was premature.
A reliable source has informed eBookNewser that Random House UK has changed its mind. According to the source, the UK publisher is in talks with the New York based parent company on the topic of how soon Random House UK should adopt Agency Pricing. It sounds like the only question left is “when”, not if, Random House UK will switch over.
The iPad 2 will be launched in the UK on March 25th, so we might be seeing the announcement during the days before the launch.
