Attorney Chalmers Officially Admitted to Represent Unregistereds

As noted in my reply to questions at the bottom of the comments under the last post, Judge George Daniels has admitted attorney Charles Chalmers to the case pro hac vice. Chalmers now officially represents the class of holders of unregistered copyrights in the negotiations to revise the settlement. There are no deadlines for achieving a new settlement. Chalmers, however, currently is "encouraged more than previously." He said he will act again soon in communicating to the judge if there is no major development in the near future. Finally, Chalmers added this: "Everyone must understand that there are about 30 to 40 separate entities, or more, each with attorneys, that have to approve everything. It might be the most unwieldy class action settlement in history."
