Cengage Responds to Lawsuit about New Subscription Service
Defendants deny allegations that authors will lose substantial revenue.
In May, two authors filed a lawsuit against textbook publisher Cengage, saying the new Cengage Unlimited subscription service will cost the authors significant sales and royalty revenue. Authors David Knox and Caroline Schact are seeking class action status in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York.
