Wowio Restricts Content, Loses Another Publisher

Brain Scan Studios wanted to release their comic Serial, about real-life serial killers, through Wowio, only to be turned down due to content. Now, although the publisher calls it “censorship”, Wowio (owned by Platinum Studios) has every right to decline to carry titles if they feel they aren’t a good match for their readership.

However, if they’re bumping some titles and others are choosing to leave (via) because of decreased downloads and feeling “uncomfortable” about the new ownership, how many are they going to be left with?

Warning, snark approaching: which value do you think will go to zero first, titles offered or readers?
