Publishers! Wake up at least now…

I had written about the short-sighted approach publishers and authors were adopting in suing Google for its Print initiative in November last year.And my point was quite valid. Came across this today through a slashdot story. It turns out that many publishers are actually gaining in sales by inclusion the Google Book Search. (On the lighter side, I feel almost prophetic :D).

Will they wake up to the realities of the new world now?

  1. The publishers are all aware of the new world realities – probably more than random lesser mortals like us. But, in business, you never miss a chance to sue, which in this case may very well turn out to be in their favour. So it will be a win win situation – you get your sales boosted and you make those responsible for it, pay you through legal suit.
