Textbook Authors Sue over Cengage Unlimited Royalties

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Michael Feldstein writes, "the handwriting is on the wall. If textbook prices come down, then textbook royalties also have to come down." But by how much? And how will they be paid? "They either will get smaller royalty agreements or will be paid once on a fee-for-services basis so that the company can own the content outright. My guess is that there will be a lot more of the latter than the former." I'm inclined to agree. And the lawsuit? Who cares! As Feldstein says, "all of this is transitional."
