The Authors Guild et al v. Google Inc.
LETTER addressed to J. Michael McMahon from Susan J. Gordon dated 8/30/2009 re: I am a professional book author and freelance magazine/newspaper writer objecting to the Google Book Settlement because it is not fair or good for writers or most publishers. Google gets to write copyright law, has no restrictions its use of reader information, and provides no language forbidding censorship. I also find the premise that I am "in" (that is, accepting of the entire settlement agreement) unless I "opt out" to be unfair and outrageous. (jmi)
