Seven Stories opts out of Google settlement

September 4, 2009

As Publishers Weekly reported, Seven Stories Press has chosen to opt out of the Google settlement. There are a number of reasons for our having serious reservations about the settlement, but most prominent among these is our belief that the issue of access to and copyright control of out-of-print works is too important to be decided through a court settlement rather than through a broad public debate. We hope to be a part of that debate in the coming months in order to help make the best possible decision about how America ought to handle the issue of copyright when dealing with our literary heritage.
