News Summary: Google, publishers settle book suit
Thursday - 10/4/2012, 4:31pm EDT
(AP) - THE END: Google and a group of major book publishers have settle a legal tussle over digital copyrights after seven years. Unlike an earlier agreement that was rejected by a federal judge in 2010, the truce announced Thursday won't need court approval.
THE DETAILS: Most details are being kept confidential. Both sides in the dispute indicated that publishers will have more control over the digital copies of the books that Google Inc. has been making for the past eight years.
NEXT CHAPTER: Thousands of authors are still going after Google in another lawsuit alleging the company is violating their copyrights.
