Default Apple Fined $118K For E-Book Copyright Violations

At first I thought this story was a repeat of one we posted last year but it isn't. I guess when it comes to copyrights, Apple just does whatever the hell it wants. Apple will have to compensate three Chinese writers for infringing their copyright rights when it sold their books online without first seeking permission. A China Daily report Wednesday stated the Beijing No. 2 Intermediate People's Court ruled in favor of the authors, and Apple will have to pay them in excess of 730,000 yuan (US$118,000) for the infringement. Apple had not gotten permission before selling their books on the Apple App Store, it noted.
