That's a different question, Memory being published pre-1999 and so when
Lois put it up at Fictionwise she didn't need anyone's permission.

There are a handful of Baen books on fictionwise with Baen's consent.

Toni Weisskopf, Publisher, Baen Books has commented on ongoing ebook
negotiations with Amazon. It appears that they can't take on board that
Baen don't want encryption, even though Amazon allow this option to small
press and self publishing authors. The price business isn't clear -
Baen's $6.00 should be OK under Amazon's price scheme but the monthly
bundle (all books for, now, $18.00) may not fit the no underctting rule,
don't know.
