I did look at the previous page, and I also looked at the article. It mentions only electronic or digital rights. Although eBooks existed, I used to read them on a Palm when I was in High School, they were not commonplace and this was before they were a normal part of a writer's contract. My first contract in 2010 although for print publication only, did specifically mention eBooks as well as electronic and digital rights. My last contract had a lot more focus on eBooks although it too was print only. I have yet to look at eBook only publishing although I expect I will get there quite soon.

My father has published a lot of books, all print media, and his contracts for the period prior to 2004 don't specifically mention eBooks.

I am just curious as to what anyone who has books published that are now out of print and who had no contractual arrangement about ePublishing would expect to gain from a law suit. Harlequin denies that a legal action has been started, not something that they would be likely to do if it wasn't true. I find the whole thing a bit dubious on several levels.
