Digital Manga's Kindle Publishing Reinstated
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The North American publisher Digital Manga Publishing announced on its Twitter account on Friday that Amazon has reinstated its account on the Kindle platform. The company added that it was thanks to the outpouring of support from fans that Amazon decided to reinstate the account.
The company had announced on its blog on Thursday that its account had been suspended from the platform, making it unable to publish new titles for the Kindle.
The post stated that the company had been cited for "content violation," and it noted that the company has struggled with the wording of Amazon's content policy. Yaoi/boys-love titles by the publisher have been removed from the Kindle store in the past. Digital Manga also stated in the post that it is now "pursuing the possibility" of offering digital manga through other platforms as a result of this event.
Amazon's guidelines for Kindle content prohibit the sale of pornography and "offensive content" (defined by the retailer as "What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect"). Apple's rival iTunes App Store and iBookstore have already implemented similar content restrictions.
