Google has settled with another party over its Google Books scanning program, but it is not with the Authors Guild. The agreement, reached late last week, is with a group of photographers, including the American Society of Media Photographers Inc., and settles charges filed in 2010 that Google’s scanning project was copyright infringement.

Google did not admit any liability and the only details of the settlement released was that Google will help fund the Picture Licensing Universal System Coalition, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping rightsholders communicate clearly and efficiently about rights in their works.

In its announcement, Google noted that the settlement “does not affect Google’s current litigation with the Authors Guild or otherwise address the underlying questions in that suit.”
