Google Book Scanning Court Hearing Postponed

Things have been moving very quickly in recent days in the Google Book Search settlement.

The settlement is intended to end class action lawsuits launched by American publisher and author organizations that accused the search behemoth of copyright infringement for unauthorized mass scanning of millions of books, many of them out of print yet still covered by copyright.

Parties involved in the case today asked a U.S. federal judge in New York to postpone an October hearing while they work out a new deal.

This move comes days after the U.S. Department of Justice made public its criticism of the original settlement.

The site ResourceShelf has compiled a press review of the most recent developments today.
