Parties Ask for Extension of Cash Payment Claiming Deadline

By [Saturday, February 12th, 2011] at 6:05 pm

As followers of the settlement know, the case hasn’t moved significantly in the year since the fairness hearing on February 18, 2010. As particularly close followers of the settlement know, the deadline for claiming the $60 one-time cash payment for already-scanned works is March 31, 2011. These two facts are about to collide. Accordingly, the Authors Guild has announced that the parties have agreed to ask the Court to change the Cash Payment deadline to one year after settlement approval. Their joint letter to the court is not yet available on the court’s docket, but we will post it here as soon as it is, and the same goes for whatever Judge Chin does in response. (No matter what he is planning to do with the settlement, or when, I can see no particular reason for him to do anything other than grant this uncontroversial motion.)
