Markets in everything, literary world edition

Part of this new policing mentality is that publishers are becoming more
  risk-averse – children’s book authors, for example, are being asked to sign
  contracts agreeing to ‘appropriate conduct’ in their private lives.

Here is much more, mostly a discussion of how digitalization is changing the literary world.

Apologies for pedantry; but should that not be digitization? Merriam-Webster has digitalization as "the administration of digitalis until the desired physiological adjustment is attained."

@burger flipper:

Wouldn't that be incentivizing suicidal behavior?

that is completely insane. Who is anybody to tell another grown adult how to live thier private life. Isnt this why we call it private? It is none of anybody elses business or concern what they do in their private lives. As long as it isnt breaking the law and not drawing too much negative attention to themselves i say go for it. By the way, it is your life.
