Two Authors Sue Cengage for Unlimited Subscription Service
The textbook authors are seeking class action status.
Educational publisher Cengage is under fire for its new unlimited subscription service. Two authors – David Knox and Caroline Schacht – filed suit in the Southern District of New York, claiming that Cengage’s new unlimited subscription service, Cengage Unlimited, will cause their sales and royalties to plummet substantially. Though the suit was filed by only two authors, they are seeking class action status on behalf of other textbook authors.
