If you buy a book at the bookstore, you own it. You can take it home, scribble in the margins, put it on the shelf, lend it to a friend, or sell it at a garage sale. But is the same thing true for the eBooks or other digital goods you buy? Retailers and copyright holders argue that you don't own those purchases, you merely license them. That means your eBook vendor can delete the book from your device without warning or explanation - as Amazon deleted Orwell's 1984 from the Kindles of surprised readers several years ago. These readers thought they owned their copies of 1984 - until, it turned out, they didn't. In The End of Ownership, Aaron Perzanowski and Jason Schultz explore how notions of ownership have shifted in the digital marketplace, and make an argument for the benefits of personal property. Of course, eBooks, cloud storage, streaming, and other digital goods offer users convenience and flexibility. But, as Perzanowski and Schultz warn, consumers should be aware of the trade-offs involving user constraints, permanence, and privacy. The rights of private property are clear, but few people manage to read their end user agreements. Perzanowski and Schultz argue that introducing aspects of private property and ownership into the digital marketplace would offer both legal and economic benefits. But more importantly, it would affirm our sense of self-direction and autonomy. If we own our purchases, we are free to make whatever lawful use of them we please. Technology need not constrain our freedom; it can also empower us.

Do you really know who or what your competition is? In this audiobook, Dr. Heidi Thorne, MBA/DBA, discusses competitive forces that prevent small businesses, solopreneurs, and self-employed consultants from making sales. What’s even more troubling is that these forces are largely invisible, meaning that they may be attitudes and situations, and not similar suppliers. This can make them very difficult to identify and overcome. Drawing on her decades of experience in selling, advertising, and publishing, Heidi explains several critical invisible competition forces, along with ways to combat them in the marketplace. Heidi is the author of more than 20 books and eBooks on self publishing and marketing topics. She has more than 25 years of experience in sales, advertising, and publishing, including more than 15 years as editor and regional advertising director for a trade newspaper. In addition to her own publishing pursuits, she helps nonfiction authors avoid embarrassing and expensive self publishing mistakes with her editing services.
