I love how open Google is with this information.
What about:"on Tuesday [i.e. on the day you posted this], Judge Denny Chin of Federal District Court in New York, who is overseeing the settlement, postponed by four months the May 5 deadline for authors to opt out of the settlement and for other parties to oppose it or file briefs. The decision follows requests by groups of authors and their heirs, who argued that authors needed more time to review the settlement."in Justice Dept. Opens Antitrust Inquiry Into Google Books Deal , Miguel Helft, NYT, April 28 09 (which order can be viewed or downloaded from SDNY - Order Extending Deadline to September 4 on Scribd.co,)?Surely, you must have known about the judge's order yesterday, so why the post misleadingly indicating a 60 days extension as if it were Google's initiative?
Sorry, I hadn't refreshed so I hadn't seen your update. Still, yours was a rather lame attempt to present the extension as a Google initiative.
