Inside Higher Ed reports that a lawsuit pitting writers and publishers against Google has been settled.

“Under the settlement, Google will pay the authors and publishers who have already sued and cover their legal fees. Perhaps more importantly, in the eyes of the plaintiffs, Google will use part of the settlement money to create a book registry that allows rights holders to be compensated for their participation in the Book Search program.”

Update 10/31: Library Journal covers the settlement.
