Kindle and Porn

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

The kindle direct publishing site states: "Pornography : We don't accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts" 

But who exactly do they think they are kidding? Either they have a very strange defintion of porn, or this vague statement exists just to give them wiggle room.  That is they could reject a sexually explicit work at whim and based on no specific criteria. Which opens the door to arbitrary and prejudiced criteria being employed behind the curtain of absolute discretion.

And don't even get me started on: "What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect."
