Publishing Your Blog on Kindle: The Agreement

While looking through the agreement for publishing your blog on a Kindle, I found the Terms of Service include 3,994 words. It’s 11 pages when I copy and paste the text into a new text document in OpenOffice.

Reading through the document, it actually looks like that Amazon will create a new feed to be used exclusively for the Kindle. You have to give to Amazon the rights to re-publish your content through their system. So is this similar to the publishers of the old days? Amazon keeps 70% of the revenues.

While there are more publications available then I thought there would be, some of the comments for The New York Times were enlightening. Read them at The NYT Kindle page.
