A funny old week at Penguin – no sooner have they pulled out of their audiobook deal with eMusic (senior management got nervous about the whole DRM-free thing, although Random House claim that none of their audiobooks have appeared on any filesharing sites), than they have to pull and pulp Norman Lebrecht’s Maestros, Masterpieces & Madness: The Secret Life and Shameful Death of the Classical Record Industry. Apparently, Mr Accuracy worked so hard getting his facts straight for his tiresome rant that Naxos’s Klaus Heymann was able to count more than 15 factual errors on the five pages devoted to his company. Heymann sued, won, and now “Penguin Books has also undertaken not to repeat these allegations and to seek the return of all unsold copies of the book”.
