Apple to pay Chinese writers for copyright infringement
By Phil Dzikiy | 04.25.13

Apple has been ordered to pay three Chinese writers a total exceeding $118,000 for infringing their copyrights. The writers, including a popular author Mai Jia, discovered that their books were being sold in the App Store without their permission. While Judge Feng Gang said Apple has a duty to determine if books uploaded by third-party vendors violate authors’ copyrights, some experts are skeptical and believe that unauthorized uploads will continue. Apple was also fined in December for selling unlicensed e-books. [via China Daily]

I find it ironic that China fines Apple for copyright infringement, when China itself is guilty of so much flagrant copyright violation.
