Google to Sell Ebooks in France [REPORT]. From @mashable

Google is preparing to launch a French edition of its ebookstore and app ecosystem, according to a report.
As first revealed by French trade publication Livres Hebdo [login required], the search giant has sent the publishing and retail partners in its Google Livres book search program updated contracts that would give the company permission to sell their ebooks through Google Play, the search giant’s recently renamed hub for exploring and buying apps, movies, books and music.
According to the contracts, publishers would receive a 52% cut of all ebooks sold through Google Play. It is not yet known what share retailers who sell ebooks through Google would receive, although it will likely be substantially less.
