NWU Against Google Deal

Wired reports that the National Writers Union -- which represents 1,500 freelance writers -- has officially come out in opposition to the Google Book Settlement.

The union, which helps freelance writers recover money from publications that don’t pay as promised, has not yet decided whether to file a friend-of-the-court brief or talk to the U.S. Justice Department, according to Tom Gradel, a member of the union’s Chicago steering committee. It decided to oppose the deal after days of discussion and a vote at its recent biennial convention.
