Who does the Author's Guild Work for?
After reading this article I have to wonder who does the Author Guild truly support. Can they be so ignorant, or do they truly support another organization?
The Guild has not hesitated to cry foul when it has been pitted against the big nasty publishers crying for readers' support. However since I have been monitoring the guild it seems they chose to side with the distributors when it comes to dealing with customers.
What I cannot fathom is why the guild has chosen to support Macmillian, this deal hurts both readers and authors

Given that the Author's Guild was the one raising a stink about TTS being a public performance of a work and therefore violating copyright (http://www.authorsguild.org/advocacy...-kindle-2.html), I'd say the AG's collective head is planted rather firmly up their nether region.
