authors vs. copyright owners

Meghann Marco, a new author, would like to have her book indexed by Google, but her publisher says no, they’d rather sue. [link from kottke.org]

As a person who spends a large part of her day trying to get people to read her book, I asked my publisher to include me in Google Print.

They said no.

I think the majority of authors would benefit from something like Google Print.
