Chinese Writer to Baidu: ‘We Are Not in a Romantic Relationship’

WSJ – “Days after a judge shot down rival Google’s plans to create a digital library of the world’s books over copyright concerns, Chinese search giant Baidu has come under fire for its own library project. Chinese authors have slammed Baidu over its document sharing website, Baidu Wenke (called “Baidu Library” in English), saying the company rejected their demands to be compensated for downloads of unlicensed copies of their works. Baidu has since promised to remove unlicensed content from the website and apologized “to any of the authors or publishers whose feelings may have been hurt by the presence of infringing content on Baidu,” but that hasn’t stopped the onslaught of complaints.”
