"previews" on other sites
Question: do we authors have any control over the "previews" offered on other sites?
I've noticed this on numerous sites- Amazon, etc.- but the one that's left me aggravated enough to post here is Google. Yesterday I happened to see Google has the first 84 pages of my book visible!
Where do these sites get the authority to do this- offering large chunks of material for free- and is there anything we can do about it? or are we giving up our rights by allowing sites to list our books?
