Stop the BookSurge Monopoly

Amazon\'s Print-on-Demand publishing company BookSurge is trying to strong arm the rest of the Print-on-Demand industry. They are currently threatening to disable a book\'s buy button if that book\'s publishing company does not use the Booksurge Print-on-Demand printing service. They have already done this to PublishAmerica. Can iUnverse, Lulu.com, etc. be far behind Must authors be forced to to as Amazon says This is a conflict of interest for Amazon, and a blatant attempt at a monopoly. Please sign this petition if you want BookSurge to stop enforcing its print service on the independent publishing industry. The donation request that occurs after you sign the petition is part of the host website, and NOT affiliated with this petition. Ignore or donate according to your own wishes.
