They still make a profit. PODs being used in NY in one bookstore to stock and produce public domain classics. You want a copy of Huckleberry Finn, you request one, they print it and you buy it. Barnes and Noble supposedly has plans to test install some POD machines in a couple of their stores. iUniverse is teamed or owned by B&N and their books eventually make it into and B&N as well as elsewhere. The cut may not be as much as if you printed a warehouse worth, but neither is the liability. Print on demand.
