NEW YORK (AP) - A New York judge has tried to pressure Google and the book industry into deciding whether they can reach an agreement in negotiations to establish a massive online library.
Federal Circuit Judge Denny Chin told lawyers for Google and authors and publishers Tuesday that if a deal isn't reached soon, he plans to decide whether offering snippets of books online can be considered a fair use of published materials.
Chin made the remarks after a lawyer for authors and publishers said it was doubtful they'd know until summer's end whether a deal could be reached. The lawyers started talks after Chin rejected their earlier settlement in March, citing antitrust concerns. The judge asked both sides to meet again before him on Sept. 15.
