'Fifty Shades of Greed' Lawsuit | Sex Work | Scoop.it

A woman claims in court that her former business partner conned her out of rights to advances for the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy.


     
Jennifer Lynn Pedroza and Christa Beebe sued Amanda M. Hayward and TWCS Operations Pty. Ltd. in Tarrant County Court.


     "This is a case about greed and self-dealing by Amanda Hayward in conning her business partner Jenny Pedroza out of her rightful partnership interest in advances and royalties flowing from the New York Times best-selling 'Fifty Shades of Grey' trilogy and in fraudulently inducting both plaintiffs into entering into contracts with a sham entity," the 48-page lawsuit begins.

Astute readers will have noticed that we’ve begun publishing our "Open Voices" eBooks in the ePub format. Now, some of our best essays and interviews are available as lightweight and portable files, and can be read on any electronic reading device that supports this open standard.

And who better to undertake the task of converting our library than your friendly opensource.com intern? This summer, I’ve refined what I consider a simple, reliable method for creating eBooks the open source way.
