S 01.012

One response to “S 01.012”

  1. Gillian Spraggs says:

    The Authors Guild guidelines on eligibility for membership state: ‘Book authors must be published by an established American publisher.’ Huge numbers of foreign authors whose rights would be affected by the settlement (if it is ratified) are not only not members of the Authors Guild; because they have never been published in the US, they are not even eligible to belong to it. I understand (from listening to Pamela Samuelson’s lecture ‘Reflections on the Google Booksearch Settlement’) that before the settlement agreement can be finally ratified by the court, the judge must be satisfied that the plaintiffs are fully representative of the settlement class. Surely this fact by itself makes it clear that they are not, and cannot be.

Associational Plaintiffs” means The Authors Guild, Inc. and the Association of American Publishers, Inc.
