Without a statement from the committee behind ReLIRE, it’s hard to know if these works have been removed from the registry because they were errors, or if the authors, translator or publisher concerned has submitted an opt-out. As a commenter pointed out on Lionel Maurel’s blog, the lack of transparency concerning the contents of the registry makes it difficult to know the status of a book on the list, for example whether it has been opposed, confirmed, etc. So it isn’t obvious why these works have now been removed.
Isn’t it funny how that braying dickhead Scott Turow — who always reminds us he is President of the Authors Guild — doesn’t seem to know that this unprecedented robbery of writers is being attempted in France?
No. No, it’s not funny at all.
