"No Authors Have Been Harmed in the Making of This Library"

>From the Electronic Frontier Foundation website (re: the Author's 
Guild lawsuit against the Hathi Trust):

"We've been puzzling over the Authors Guild's decision to sue 
several university libraries for participating in the 
digitization and storage of millions of works (largely in 
connection with the Google Books project) and making scans of 
some of those works available to the academic community. Simply 
put, it appears that the Guild is dead set on wasting time and 
money addressing imaginary harms, whether or not its efforts 
might actually benefit either its members or the public."
