Upon reading about the latest lawsuit in big publishing, we couldn’t help but think of the cliché “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
You see, this case brings together Penguin Random House — one of the big five traditional publishing houses — and Amazon Publishing.
The two, along with several prominent members of the Authors Guild (Lee Child, John Grisham, and R.L. Stine, among others) are suing Kiss Library for “illegally copying, distributing, and selling works written or published by the plaintiffs,” reports Publishing Perspectives.
Kiss Library is a website that several of these plaintiffs claim is a pirate bookstore based in Ukraine.
