The Google Book Settlement:
What’s an Author to Do?
Teleconference Call with Media Attorney Steven D. Smit
4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2

If you’re an author who has received an opt-out letter regarding the Google Book Settlement, it’s hard to know what opting out or staying in actually means for you. And with the opt-out deadline of Sept. 4 approaching, authors are scrambling to make a decision.
As a service to our members and other authors, the Writers’ League of Texas is hosting a teleconference call with attorney Steven D. Smit, of Graves, Dougherty, Hearon, & Moody in Austin. Steve has been monitoring the Google settlement and will give an overview of the settlement and review the pros and cons of opting out.
NOTE: The conference call is limited to the first 90 registrants; you MUST register here. The dial-in number and pass code will be sent to registrants in an e-mail confirmation.
