More On Google and the Mythical Opt-Out

Got this e-mail from a friend who also does this for a living:

I asked my editor about the google problem and she said that Random House was aware of it, and had filed for an injunction against google through the American Association of Publishers to ensure author rights are respected.

I’m pretty sure Harper Collins is in the AAP, and Warner and TOR likely are as well.
If that will help.

As I told her:

My agent is livid. And you notice that “opt out” seems to mean “tell us you want to opt out, and we’ll decide whether or not we can get someone bigger than you to tell us we don’t have to.”
