Judge may limit speakers in Google books hearing; Associated Press, 9/17/09

Associated Press; Judge may limit speakers in Google books hearing:

"A New York judge says about 400 submissions were filed with his chambers prior to a hearing on a hotly disputed class-action settlement that would give Google Inc. the digital rights to millions of out-of-print books.

Federal Judge Denny Chin said Wednesday he may have to limit the number of speakers and how long each can speak at an Oct. 7 fairness hearing for the settlement in Manhattan.

He said anyone who wishes to speak must submit a request in writing by Monday at googlebookcase(at) Those permitted to speak will be notified by e-mail by Sept. 25."
