GBS: Google Sued by Chinese Author


It appears that author Mian Mian, after first threatening to sue over Google’s scanning of her novel Acid Lovers, went ahead and did it. It’s not yet clear how this will interact with the ongoing talks between Google and the China Written Works Copyright Society.

UPDATE: More from the Christian Science Monitor.


Will Google and its nimble lawyers turn this suit upside down and GBS China as it has the US/UK/Canada/Australia? Chinese libraries, publishers, authors, bookstores,readers BEWARE.


I have just discovered something interesting- When doing a search for “Douglas Fevens” at Google “my” Chinese Facebook page out ranks my English Facebook Page - go figure. Douglas Fevens, Halifax, Nova Scotia The University of Wisconsin, Google, & Me (English)


I just did a “Douglas Fevens” search at Google.ca and found my Facebook (English)page as the top ranked result. Do you suppose search engines manipulate search results, and if so how can Google Books results be trusted? Douglas Fevens, Halifax, Nova Scotia The University of Wisconsin, Google, & Me
