Today, Seattle Public Utilities unveiled its new phone book opt-out system, where you can decide which books you’d like to receive, and which you don’t. Publishers are looking at a steep fine of up to $125 for each violation.
No, it’s not the ideal “opt-in” system, where you’d have to request a book from a publisher—but it’s a start. And it’s great to see the city put some muscle behind a registry that’s previously been voluntary.
