Google and the authors and publishers contingent who sued it for copyright infringement in 2005 reported making “substantial progress” toward reaching a reasonable agreement, the third time the parties have attempted to come to terms in the last two years. New York District Court Judge Denny Chin acknowledged at a status conference Sept. 15 that he was “still hopeful” that a resolution could be reached, according to Bloomberg. However, the deal is at least a year away after Chin signed off on a schedule of events running through July 31, 2012, according to James Grimmelmann, an associate professor at New York Law School.
