Snakes and Escalators.

It has been suggested that larger publisher may start adopting royalties schedules where authors who sell higher volumes get larger roaylties (called "escalators")

I am not sure exact;y why they would do this , and do it for ebooks but not print? Reasoning does not seem to be provided in the article.

But given that many large presses have trouble keeping an accurate accounting even with a flat royalty, imagine how they could screw up payments based on an escalating royalty.
