After securing the the digital rights to publish books of its authors exclusively on Amazon.com, New York literary agency Wylie Agency is now pulling out of most of the agreement. According to an article in The Wall Street Journal, after the deal was struck a month ago Random House, which published 13 of the 20 Wylie titles, disputed Amazon's right to sell the digital versions of them.
With a threat of a boycott by Random House for any new offerings by Wylie's clients, the agency backed out and reached an agreement with Random House, which will now distribute the e-version of the disputed titles. The 13 titles have since been removed from Amazon.com.
