O.J. Simpson will have the right to resell publication and TV rights to his book If I Did It before the end of the year, Time magazine reported Monday, citing a source close to Simpson, who also told the magazine that Simpson is seeking to have News Corp surrender the rights earlier than the original deal stipulates so that he can sell the book to European publishers. Meanwhile, Fred Goldman, father of Ron Goldman, one of Simpson's alleged victims, says that he is seeking to have News Corp turn the rights over to him, citing News Corp's earlier assertion that profits from the book would go to the victims' families. Goldman told Time: "If they want to be through with this, they should have no problem turning over those rights to us."
