Google’s revised Book Search agreement coming Friday


For parties concerned with the outcome of the Google Book Search saga, today was supposed to be a big day.

But alas, the high drama that was expected to accompany the release of a revised settlement agreement with authors and publishers will have to wait till the end of the week.

In a letter to the federal judge in New York presiding over the settlement, an attorney for the parties said the new settlement agreement would be delivered on Friday, not today, which had been set as the original (albeit soft) deadline.

Attorney Michael Boni said that the parties had convened multiple meetings with lawyers at the Department of Justice, including one last Friday, and took Judge Denny Chin up on his offer of delaying submission of the update agreement.
