Chinese writers sue Apple for copyright violations

This shows that China is catching up on copyrights.

Hmm, they seemed to have learned how to count from the various Western copyright abusing agencies:

Quote:
“The download number of one best-selling book is as much as one million, which creates about one billion dollars in losses for each writer,” the society’s spokesman Bei Zhicheng told the Nanjing Daily.

How ironic that someone from China is sueing for copyright violations lol.

Next thing we will see is people getting speeding tickets at a racetrack.

That irony of reciprocal of course... American companies seem to be as disinterested in the rights of foreign artists and creators as Chinese companies....

This is indeed funny, given China's flagrant violations of US copyright!

What we can hope emerges is a mutual understanding of the need to honor copyrights and to pay for content legally and better behavior from both sides.
