    In a bid to wrest control of the ebook distribution market from Apple, Google and Amazon, Random House and Penguin are set to merge.

    The companies seem concerned that the distribution of books has been concentrated into the hands of a few giant retailers, and are intent on regaining control of the distribution of ebooks, using their own technology.
