More Time to Mull Controversial Book Rights

A United States judge has given Google Inc more time to revise a legal settlement that has drawn government scrutiny because it would give the Internet search leader the digital rights to millions of out-of-print books.

Under a change approved on Monday, Google and groups representing US authors and publishers now have until Friday to change an agreement reached more than a year ago.

The Justice Department believes the original arrangement could lead to collusion that would raise the prices for digital books.
