Google Is Sued By Chinese Author Mian Mian

From BBC News:

A Beijing judge has told the Chinese novelist Mian Mian, who is suing over its plan to create an online library, to hold settlement talks.

After a two-hour hearing, the court ordered both sides to talk but did not set a deadline for reporting back, according to the author’s lawyer.

She is seeking damages of 61,000 yuan ($8,950; £5,576) and a public apology.

The lawsuit was filed in October after Google scanned one of Mian Mian’s books, Acid House, into its library.
