Cory Doctorow on the Authors Guild and Opt-In

Cory Doctorow nails it:

In other words, the [Authors Guild] believes that Google shouldn’t be allowed to opt writers in to its Google Print program (which will make money for writers and sell more books), but they believe that they should be able to opt writers into their costly, suicidal lawsuit against Google, which, if they are victorious, will reduce sales and take money out of writers’ pockets.
