The federal judge who is responsible for reviewing the Google book settlement that would create a vast digital library has set Nov. 9 as the date by which Google and its partners must submit a revised settlement for the court’s preliminary approval.The original agreement, which was reached last October between Google and representatives of the Authors Guild and the Association of American Publishers, was derailed by numerous objections from authors, academics, librarians, public interest groups and would-be rivals, as well as the Justice Department, which recommended in a filing last month that the court reject the settlement of the class-action suit as it currently stands.
