Today Oyster announced the launch of their ebook store, which has the backing of all five major American publishers: Hachette, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, and Simon & Schuster.

Hachette's participation comes on the heels of last year's contract dispute with Amazon over the costs of ebooks.
