A federal judge ordered Google Inc. and a group of book authors and publishers to reach a deal over Google Books, Google’s proposed digital library of books, by September.

US District Court Judge Denny Chin set a hearing date for Sept. 15 and told the two parties the case would proceed to trial if the parties aren’t close to a settlement by that date.

“We have been working closely with the authors and publishers to explore a number of options in response to the court's decision,” Google said in a statement. “Regardless of the outcome, we'll continue to make books discoverable and useful through Google Books and Google eBooks.”
