Pornographic E-books Infuriates Kobo and Causes Kobo Shutdown. Will Amazon Do Anything?


Here’s a great article from the LA Times showing how Kobo, a leading e-book provider in  Great Britain, reacted to the unsavory practice of pornographic e-books being published by rogue self publishers.  These books, unfortunately, aren’t your regular sexually explicit novels.  These books go well beyond that and celebrate rape, incest and statutory rape.  The question is now raised, what will Amazon.com do?  Will they improve their filtering system and develop a vetting process that prevents these titles from being offered or continue to allow the loopholes these authors/publishers use to continue to load their e-books?  I’d like to think that Amazon.com will prevent this type of material from being available.
