Authors Guild et al. get more time to revise $125m Google book settlement

The New York Times reports that the parties to the proposed $125 million Google Books Search settlement (Authors Guild, Association of American Publishers, Google) have asked for an extension to submit a revised agreement for court approval. The revised agreement was due today, but U.S. District Court Judge Denny Chin has approved a request to extend the deadline until Friday, November 13, 2009.

In related news, the Authors Guild still has not posted biographies of its Executive Director, Paul Aiken, and its Board of Directors. Looks like Congress and the IRS need to initiate another round of nonprofit reform.
