Re: Librarians Rally Behind Blogger Sued by Publisher Over Critical Comments

Blog comment on Librarians Rally Behind Blogger Sued by Publisher Over Critical Comments / Jake New. The Chronicle of Higher Education, February 14, 2013

Publishers who feel they have been treated unfairly should try to fix the misunderstanding instead of trying to force into silence those who have spoken honestly. Edwin Mellen Press may feel it was mistreated–that is fine–but they very clearly have no interest in trying to fix what they see as an error or unfair treatment. Obviously, this librarian is not alone in his opinion so from the business standpoint, they should be trying to fix the problem.

Their actions indicate that they cannot disprove the original accusations, and that the librarian was right.
