Japanese Publishers Threaten to Bite Apple [blogs.wsj.com]

So it turns out that maybe not everyone in Japan loves Apple Inc.

A Japanese consortium of book, e-book, magazine and digital comic publishers issued a stern rebuke of Apple's enforcement of copyrights on its App Store. The group said certain works by renowned Japanese authors Haruki Murakami and Keigo Higashino have been illegally scanned and distributed over the App Store.

In a joint press release on Tuesday, the Japan Book Publishers Association, the Japan Magazine Publishers Association, The Electronic Book Publishers Association of Japan, and Digital Comic Association said Apple's distribution of content that clearly infringes copyright is "illegal."

"The associations we represent believe that Apple bears grave responsibility for this problem," the statement said.
