GBS: Justice Remains Concerned

The Wall Street Journal has a story today with some very interesting language on the DOJ’s reaction to the amended settlement:

People familiar with the matter say the Justice Department remains concerned that the fact the settlement gives Google immunity from lawsuits related to orphan works may be anticompetitive. The department is expected to file its reaction to the modified agreement by early next year.

A spokeswoman for the Justice Department said the department is reviewing the revised agreement and its investigation into the settlement is “ongoing.”
