A group of authors and the heirs of others, including representatives of the estate of John Steinbeck, and of the musician Arlo Guthrie, are asking a federal judge to delay by four months the deadline for authors to decide whether or not to participate in the settlement of a landmark class-action lawsuit against Google.
The settlement, which would establish a complex mechanism for authors to grant rights to digital versions of their books, has been criticized by various parties. Some groups plan to oppose some of its provisions.
