European Union Examines Google Books

The European Union will be holding hearings this fall on the proposed Google Books settlement, according to this report:

U.S. District Court Judge Denny Chin already has delayed the opt-out/objection deadline until September and the settlement hearing until October -- in part because the Justice Department is investigating the deal on antitrust grounds. Something tells me that the international rumblings may push things back even more. As noted earlier, the current fairness hearing date, October 7, happens to be the same day as oral arguments before the Supreme Court in Reed Elsevier v. Muchnick.
