Let’s discover the situation in detail to know the exact issues and actions of Amazon on the same.      

What Jane Friedman Disclosed? 

Jane Friedman, a journalist and co-founder of Open Road Integrated Media took on  Twitter to disclose the unfair events taking place over Amazon. On August 7, Jane Friedman uncovered the real-life case of AI coming to replace the author’s and publishers’ jobs in the near future. 

“Around half of the dozens of books being sold on Amazon with my identity, and surprisingly I haven’t written or published any of the books”, disclosed Jane Friedman.

The scenario can become a serious problem for the book publishing world in the near future, she added. The books are generated by the huckster with the help of AI and are listed on Amazon. According to Friedman, Amazon refused the request to unlist the books from its website. Also, the book does not hold any trademark to her own name.  

Some of the books like “Your Guide to Writing a Bestseller eBook on Amazon” and “Promote to Prosper: Strategies to Skyrocket Your eBook Sales on Amazon” are not written by Friedman and are listed on Amazon with her name.  

The Reason Behind Unlisting 

The disclosure of Jane Friedman completely stirred Amazon and revealed the misuse or forbidden impact of AI on the book publishing world. Friedman’s announcement emerged as one of the most recent and serious challenges for Amazon, pointing fingers at Amazon’s reputation. 

In response, Amazon asked for trademark registration numbers related to the claim. As Jane Friedman does not have any trademark on her name, Amazon closed the case stating that the books would not be removed from the list. 

She alleged that most of the books with her name are AI-generated being sold under her name which not only affected her reputation but also affected Amazon’s status in the market. She later responded that Amazon had unlisted the AI-generated books.

In addition, the Authors Guild, America’s professional organization for writers supported Jane Friedman and assured her to take up the matter with Amazon. Further, Friedman requested Amazon to create a system to verify authorship or a system to block unauthorized books. As A result of this, Amazon listed the fake or AI-generated books as “Temporarily out of stock” by unlinking the page with Friedman’s real books.  

Conclusion

Jane Friedman, a journalist, disclosed an unethical practice that took place over the Amazon site. She claimed that dozens of books on Amazon are AI-generated and are listed under her name. The incident not only impacted her reputation but also affected Amazon’s reputation in the commercials. In response, Amazon unlisted the AI-generated books by marking them out of stock.
