I don't understand the kerfuffle over the iBooks Author EULA.
Apple is not claiming rights to your text or illustrations.
They're simply claiming that if you use their authoring tool to put together an interactive book, you must either give it away free or sell it via the iBookstore.
If you want to use another authoring tool to sell your book on Amazon, the Kindle, ePub, whatever.
Pretending that the EULA states anything other than that - like that Apple owns the "content" or the actual words or requires you to sell those words only via their store - is stupid, preposterous, and dishonest.
Of course, there are saner perspectives as well.
