Google Book Lawsuit Not Ending Any Time Soon

Earlier today, Judge Denny Chin of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York granted a motion to delay an Oct. 7th hearing on the Google Book Lawsuit Settlement because it appears that Google and its allies are now willing to modify some of the proposed settlement terms to allay the fears of copyright holders and Google's competitors. I believe this is a good sign because this signals that Google may be more flexible in their position. Lets hope this is the case for all stakeholders since the proposed settlement has the ability to fundamentally change copyright law throughout the world.
