“While we have not seen a spike in our publishing numbers, in order to help protect against abuse, we are lowering the volume limits we have in place on new title creations,” Kindle Direct Publishing, Amazon’s e-book platform, announced on Monday.
For the past several months, Amazon has faced a number of controversies related to the presence of AI-generated content on its website. In June, the bestseller pages were overtaken by a glut of AI-written books that listed fake authors and contained nonsensical prose.
Many suspected that the AI books were a ploy to generate money because Kindle Unlimited allows readers to access as many books as they want, while the authors are paid by pages read rather than by book sales.
