Authors v Audible "The War of Words"

Welcome to #Audiblegate, the home of the Fair Deal for Authors & Narrators group (FDAN).

We demand Audible deliver transparency & fair payment for our books in the future and compensation for their misuse of our intellectual property in the past.

 

The Amazon antitrust and anticompetitive tactics continue with Audible, who for years have shortchanged content providers worldwide and continue to do so by allowing readers to return an audiobook with no questions asked.

 

Audible, we know what you're doing and we won’t stop until we see justice.

Audiblegate Episode 8 (S2 Ep1) - Monopolistic Enrichment

Welcome to Season 2 of the Audiblegate podcast series with our new presenters, WIlliam Bahl and Abdiel LeRoy. A massive tech monopoly enriching itself at suppliers' expense? We're shocked, I tell you, shocked! Well, strap yourself in. It's about to get ugly as we report from the front lines on Audible's wanton destruction of authors' and narrators' livelihoods. William is an independent narrator of more than 400 titles, and Abdiel the author of some 20 books, most of which he has also narrated as audiobooks. In this first episode of the new season, Abdiel describes why he is "livid" about Audible's predatory behavior, and he trades horror stories with William about dealing with this rapacious monopoly and monopsony! In 2020, Australian author Susan May began the Audiblegate movement to hold Audible accountable for authors’ and narrators’ losses due to their unfair listener “exchange” benefit. She leads a small, determined team who are fighting the biggest company in the world for justice. These Audiblegate podcasts take you behind the scenes of this international movement.
