+ - Judge Chin Says He Will Cut the Google Book Settle->

Submitted by
Miracle Jones
Miracle Jones writes "In a move that has shocked the publishing world, Judge Denny Chin has filed a brief saying that he has decided to cut the Google Book Settlement in half, letting Google host the first half of every book the company has scanned, and letting other interested stakeholders fight for the rights to the rest.

"We think this is a hard decision, but a fair one," said John Peter Franks for Google. "We would like to be able to host and control whole books, but at least we get the front half.""
