Authors' Guild vs. Google

According to Cory Doctorow, after criticizing Google Print's opt-out policy, the Authors' Guild filed a class action law suit on behalf of all authors of books scanned by Google Print. Now I have to opt out of their law suit? How ironically hilarious. Does this mean I'm suing my own company? ;)

Of course you can opt-out of the class-action lawsuit -- to avoid suing your present employer.

Normally in these class-action suits they have to somehow identify every member of the class and write a letter to them -- a very costly process. The opt-in unless you opt-out process still requires that they contact you IN WRITING via snail mail to invite you to opt-out.

And the FLICKR pics look great -- descendents to carry on the crazy Bob tradition!

Thanks for the invite.
