I've run down a couple of posts that have gotten me a lot closer to understanding the ins and outs of the "agency model", which of course lies at the heart of the Amazon-Macmillan dispute. I'm prepping for my chemo infusion, and don't have time for analysis or commentary, but here's the links that may be useful to others.

Apple pitching its agency model to book publishers — From ZDNet.

Apple’s disruption of the ebook market has nothing to do with the tablet — From the Idea Logical Blog.

Note both of these slightly predate the current kerfuffle, so it's interesting to read their analyses without the filter of the side-taking going on right now.
