Chris Almeida (chrisalmeida) | 29 comments Hi,

For books affected by the cocky TM, should the original covers/books be deleted or should the new covers/books (asin) be added as alternate cover/title to the original one?

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1770 comments That trademark is currently under legal dispute, so I don't know that that we would do anything as librarians as we don't typically handle anything related to legal matters considering we are volunteers.

As to any books that have a new cover, I think that would be covered under the standard ACE rules as laid out in the librarian manual.

Correct. Goodreads Librarians are not employees of Goodreads, but volunteers. They cannot assist with legal issues. You'll need to use the Contact Us link on the Help page with any legal questions.

Also correct. Please see http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85....
