more on the Google Books Grab

"The National Writers Union, the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America have written to their author peers in Congress, seeking their support in encouraging the Department of Justice to continue its opposition to the Google Books Settlement. The Los Angeles Times reports that Google declined to address the letter’s concerns, and the Authors Guild did not respond to a request for comment."

This letter succinctly and clearly lays out the issues at hand in Google's attempt to pirate all the world's books. Let's hope that Congress listens.
