While the Authors Guild has advised authors published by the now-defunct indie house MacAdam Cage that an agreement giving control of their e-book rights to MP Publishing survives the bankruptcy, the Guild is also offering legal assistance to any author who wishes to challenge that agreement in court.

In a blog post on the Authors Guild site, Jan Constantine, AG general counsel, said that the Guild will, “assist any MacAdam/Cage author who wants to challenge MP’s claim to his or her titles. To discuss the matter with our legal team, send an e-mail to staff@authorsguild.org, attaching a copy of your MacAdam/Cage agreement."

Constantine said that, “now that MacAdam Cage is defunct, we will hold MP and its owner Mark Pearce directly accountable for e-book titles that have been exploited without authorization or compensation.”
