Apple Is Sued For $1.9 Million

Apple is sued for 11.9 million yuan ($1.9 million) by a group of Chinese authors after a few month they persuaded the company to grant their request -- yet Apple remains unanswered and silent over their protest. They ask Apple to take down the books they claim have copyright-infringement issue from App store.

As they name it 'compensation', a $1.9 million is the amount Apple should pay for all the copyright-infringing books who have been downloaded in App store.

Apple Is Sued

The group consists of nine authors wearing the China Written Works Copyright Society (CWWCS) mantle, and they bring B No. 2 Intermediate People's Court law for copyright infringement of 37 works.

The CWWCS said no one was available to comment for this article. An Apple spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment. Calls to the Beijing No. 2 Intermediate People's Court were not answered. ($1 = 6.3095 Chinese yuan)

Looks like Apple is not too care on responding this pretension as it's reported none from the company step in to appease the authors, not even their chosen spokeswoman, as she is not available to comment now.
