The Great Book Bank Robbery - A Must Read

Today we read the best and most damming response to Google's land grab from Chris Castle in The Register. We are happy that the arguments are now surfacing and hope that they will be at last heard.

We would recommend you to read the article 'Is Google's culture grab unstoppable?Monopoly Money from Digital Books', print it out or forward them to your CEO, Digital Director, Rights Director.

Ask them one question - To defend the settlement?
Ask the American Booksellers Association their position?
Ask why the author bodies think this is a good move?
Ask the UK Publishers Association were it stands?

Most of all satisfy yourselves that this is a fair and equitable deal for the good of all.
