Authors Guild and Society of Authors Tangle With the Internet Archive

On Jan. 18, 2019, the Society of Authors “issued a media alert to its cease-and-desist open letter to the Internet Archive, and—as in previous instances in which the English-language world’s two largest author trade organizations have teamed up—the eloquence inherent in writers’ work is quickly apparent in how they’re putting across their message,” he writes.
