This doesn't affect us readers however I thought I'd just post it for informational purposes.  It involves calculation of author ebook royalties.

It'll be interesting to see what a court says. Apparently some of the claims are that Harlequin created the Swiss arm of the company just to have another player (themselves) to pay money to before figuring what the Author's share would be.

Someone else called it "Hollywood Accounting."

If the author's were taken, I hope they get it back and not have to pay it all out on lawyers.
