Google wants to delay a hearing on its controversial digital books settlement so it can modify the deal to satisfy antitrust regulators, according to a motion filed Tuesday. An Oct. 7 hearing was scheduled in New York to approve a $125 million settlement with authors and publishers that would allow Google to digitize millions of books. But the deal has come under intense scrutiny from the Department of Justice, which filed a stinging opposition to the settlement on Friday because of antitrust concerns.
