Apple must pay $165,000 to Chinese writers A Chinese court has ruled Apple must pay a tiny penalty to eight writers.
The writers, along with two companies, had accused Apple of allowing their work to be made available for distribution through Apple's online store without their permission.

Beijing's No. 2 Intermediate People's Court ruled that the writer's copyrights had been violated, but the award was far less than the $1.9 million the writers were seeking.

Apple had very little to say except to say that they "take copyright infringement complaints very seriously" and may consider an appeal.
