    The Supplemental Agreement Regarding Right to Terminate is confidential between Plaintiffs and Google

    What about the rest of the settlement class? If this document is part of the settlement agrement, surely they have a right to see it?

  2. That’s a good question. This clause gives a potentially open-ended right to terminate to the parties, on conditions and with procedures that are spelled out in a secret document. I would think that the contents of that document would be critical for authors and publishers to evaluate whether or not the settlement is a good deal for them.

ARTICLE XVI — RIGHT TO TERMINATE AGREEMENTIntentionally Omitted

Google, the Author Sub-Class, and the Publisher Sub-Class each will have theright but not the obligation to terminate this Settlement Agreement if the withdrawal conditions set forth in the Supplemental Agreement Regarding Right to Terminate between Plaintiffs and Google have been met. Any decision by Google, the Author Sub-Class or the Publisher Sub-Class to terminate this Settlement Agreement pursuant to this Article XVI (Right to Terminate Agreement) will be in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Supplemental Agreement Regarding Right to Terminate. The Supplemental Agreement Regarding Right to Terminate is confidential between Plaintiffsand Google, and will not be filed with the Court except as provided therein.
