WSJ calls Google book scanning settlement a “rip-off for authors”

scrooge-and-bob-cratchit-from-dickens-a-christmas-carolThe Wall Street Journal is running a well-written and persuasive editorial strongly against the Google book scanning settlement, calling it a “rip-off” for authors.  The author warns that we are all on track to become “Google’s data-entry slaves”  and that it turns authors “into fully subordinated, last-in-line net residuaries.”

Our editorial position is similarly very strong against the whole settlement nonsense, and have provided some suggestions as to how you can take action to prevent this blatant heist of copyrighted material.
