Interview starts at 14:25

Many of the things that the authors and the publishers complain about are normal, everyday behavior in the chemical industry, in the auto industry, in the telecom industry, and the construction industry, which are industries which I’ve worked on—this is the way business works. The publishing industry doesn’t understand this, and so when Amazon does things that are normal business practices, they get very upset, because they’ve never seen this type of business before.
