It looks like the Chinese are still taking potshots at the old version of the settlement:
The company has offered a compensation settlement of $60 per book to authors, as well as 63 percent of the revenue from online reading. To reject the package and Google’s right to scan their works, however, writers must appeal before Jan 5 next year.
Zhang, who met with executives from Google on Nov 2, blasted the offer as unacceptable.
“Google violated Chinese writers’ copyright. It is ridiculous for a business in the US to set a deadline for Chinese writers to protect their interests. Also, the company should clearly admit to its infringements and negotiate with Chinese authors sincerely,” he said.
There is much more at the link, but the article and some of the authors quoted in it seem to be unaware of the existence of the amended settlement, which would take most Chinese authors out of the class entirely. Does news of such thing still travel by clipper ship?
