Keiler v. Harlequin is a lawsuit by Harlequin authors against Harlequin for actions by the publisher that resulted in massive underpayment of royalties to authors for ebooks. Some authors report receiving as little as six cents in royalties for sales of each of their ebooks by Harlequin
PG won’t bore you with the history of this case, but Romance Writes of America and The Authors Guild have filed what is called an amicus brief with the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
If you skip down to page 7 of the PDF (page 2 according to the brief’s page numbering) to Summary of the Argument, you’ll get to the meat of the filing.
Thanks to Julie for the tip.
