Revised Google Book Settlement For November

Following the status conference on the Google Book Settlement case, Judge Denny Chin has agreed to the requests of lawyers for Google to allow a revised agreement to be drawn up in light of the multiple objections from parties, including the US Justice Department, lodged with the Federal Courts. The revised agreement will now be presented to the courts on November 9th with a final hearing scheduled for January 2010. Lawyers in the case have also requested the court allow any objections to the revised agreement for a limited period of time and that these objections be restricted to the new revised agreement.
It still all looks as certain as a house of playing cards staying up in a tornado and this one may well drag on well into 2010.
