If the price of the book changes, does the ISBN?
If changing the cover of a book, does a new ISBN have to be assigned?
If typos are being corrected, is a new ISBN necessary?


If the price of the book changes, does the ISBN?
No. The ISBN only changes if the product changes.


If changing the cover of a book, does a new ISBN have to be assigned?
US practice is if the book is just out or the idea is to give a marketing boost to the product, then no, a new ISBN should not be assigned. However, if the change in cover substantially changes the product (ie., would lead to customer complaints), then a new ISBN should be used.


If typos are being corrected, is a new ISBN necessary?
No.
