With the reports confirmed, a group of Chinese authors including the popular blogger and social critic Han Han and the controversial author Li Chengpeng, announced January 6 that their 11.9 million yuan (approximately $1.9 million) lawsuit against the American giant Apple for copyright violations has accepted by the Beijing Court.

A member of Chinese writers representing the authors believes that it is a “total theft” as Apple pockets 30% of total profits through the work sold by companies on App Store. In the earlier years, the group has waged similar battles with Baidu Inc and Google Inc over their online book products.
