Google Books Settlement: The Chinese Chapter; Wall Street Journal, 10/20/09

Juliet Ye, Wall Street Journal; Google Books Settlement: The Chinese Chapter:

"Google’s troubles in China seem to have taken a new turn as a result of the company’s plan to create a vast digital library of books.

The China Written Works Copyright Society (CWWCS) has called on Chinese writers to stand up for their legal rights in the face of Web search giant Google’s proposed book settlement, according to a post published on the official Web site of Chinese Writers’ Association (CWA).
CWWCS claimed to have found copyrighted works written by a number of Chinese writers scanned and posted to Google’s digital library, Google Books."
