The Authors Guild et al v. Google Inc.
LETTER addressed to Madam or Sir from Dr. A. Nagele dated 9/1/09 re: My name is Andreas Nagele, one of the partners of Gebr. Borntraeger Verlagsbuchhandlung of Stuttgart, Germany, a publisher of scholarly books and journals since 1790. Our books and journals are in distributed and read in US, and elsewhere; We write to object the settlement agreement; Further, roughly 90% of the data on Gebr. Borntraeger's publications, that Google Inc. has made available in the preview of its planned book registry is flawed, incomplete and downright incorrect, especially when it concerns the commercial availability of our copyrighted works; It appears to us that Google Inc. has simply chosen to label everything out of print, with very few exceptions.
