<p>Hachette has reportedly pulled its e-book titles from US retailers of digital books after growing concerned about the lack of territorial controls over where those titles are sold.<br /><br />According to David Rothman's website TeleRead.org. the "surprise action" by Hachette happened because US distributors (Overdrive, Ingram Digital and Mobipocket) have not yet implemented systems to limit sales to assigned territories in a manner with which Hachette Livre (the French parent company of Hachette US) was comfortable. This, would likely create contract issues with European resellers and authors.</p>
