Some of HarperCollins Most Popular Authors

The following are some of the authors we will be boycotting because of their association with HarperCollins.  Please contact these authors and let them know that our library will not purchase their works, until HarperCollins comes up with a more reasonable digital rights policy.

Authors, let us know where you stand on the HarperCollins current digital righs policy.

I wrote The Dead Beat: Lost Souls, Lucky Stiffs, and the Perverse Pleasures of Obituaries (2006)and This Book Is Overdue! How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All (2010), both for HarperCollins, and I disagree with this new policy. Here is a link to my blog post on this subject:

We are glad to hear from a HarperCollins author. We had not heard the responses from any authors to this point. Thanks for the comment. We hope that an agreeable compromise will come of all of this.
