eSchool News (2009) Feds want Google to rewrite book deal eSchool News, Sept 21

The U.S. Justice Department advised a federal judge on Sept. 18 that a proposed legal settlement giving Google Inc. the digital rights to millions of out-of-print books threatens to thwart competition and drive up prices unless it’s revised. The Justice Department also expressed concerns that foreign copyright holders were not sufficiently compensated.

Despite its misgivings, the Justice Department expressed confidence that Google and the authors and publishers could negotiate changes so the settlement will adhere to U.S. copyright and antitrust laws.
