Chinese Writers Sue Apple for Allegedly Hosting Pirated E-books

A group of Chinese writers has filed a lawsuit against Apple, alleging that the company’s App Store sells pirated versions of the authors’ works.

The lawsuit demands Apple compensate the writers for 11.9 million yuan (US$1.88 million) and cease selling the products. Beijing Second Intermediate People’s Court has accepted the case, according to Bei Zhicheng, executive for the writer’s group.
