Apple accused of infringing copyrights by Japanese publishers
Four Japanese publishers have accused Apple of infringing on copyrights, saying the company is offering illegally scanned books and graphic novels via its iOS App Store.

The four accusing publishers are the Japan Book Publishers Association, Japan Magazine Association, the Electronic Book Publishers Association of Japan, and the Digital Comic Association.



Each says that Apple has deleted some of the pirated titles, but others are still freely available.

One such publication is Haruki Murakamiís "1Q84."

Apple has noted that it "respects intellectual-property rights and that it will respond to complaints promptly and appropriately."

    Hey, look at that. They figured out a way to put the words, 'Apple' and 'intellectual' in the same sentence. :-)
