An Example of overreaction: iBook Author' restrictions

The famous line:

If you charge a fee for any book or other work you generate using this software (a “Work”), you may only sell or distribute such Work through Apple (e.g., through the iBookstore) and such distribution will be subject to a separate agreement with Apple.

What people think it means: MONOPOLY ON BOOKS!! ATROCIOUS!!

What it means: If you create a book using iBook Author, and you want to charge for it, it can only be sold on iTunes. The content itself is not being regulated, you can copy every single line of your book, and paste it into another application, export a PDF or epub, and be done with it. This makes sense, why would Apple build a tool for competitors to use? It makes no sense. They built a tool that allows people to make beautiful books for their platform, what you, as the author, write is yours, and you can publish it anyway you want to, just not using iBook Author.
