ImagesAnother one from The Bookseller. Random House UK is not jumping on the agency bandwagon, or at least not yet.

However, Random House UK said it had a wait and see policy on the pricing model. When the Office of Fair Trading launched its investigation into e-book pricing in February, publishers outside agency said they would be more cautious about it while it was under review.

A spokesperson for Random House UK did not refer to the OFT investigation but said: “New commercial models in the fast changing e-book environment are constantly under review. Across our territories—not least in the UK—we continue to evaluate our options and talk to all e-tailers as it is our mission to ensure that our authors’ books are available on all platforms to all potential customers.”
