All The Big Online Players Now Operating In Brazil

from Publishing Perspectives:

Brazilian publishers are very optimistic about the arrival of the international retailers and happy that the long negotiation process is over. "We went through a lot of details, because in digital business you have to foresee every possible situation, it took a long time to negotiate," said Fabio Uehara, the executive responsible for digital business at publisher Companhia das Letras. "We are very happy that, after all the brouhaha, it has actually started: Kobo's store is open, Apple's etc. I think this Christmas is going to be great," he added.

According to Fernando Baracchini, president of publisher Novo Conceito, Amazon's arrival is a watershed: "There will be now a 'pre-Amazon' and a 'post-Amazon' period," and the 'post' period will be better, it is a serious and competent company. I am not afraid, I am very enthusiastic about it."
