(Beijing)—A consortium of Chinese writers announced January 6 that their 12 million yuan lawsuit against Apple for copyright violations has entered into formal proceedings.

Amongst the writers are the popular blogger and social critic Han Han, and the controversial author Li Chengpeng, whose book "Li Kele Fights Demolition" touched on forced demolitions and relocations—a politically sensitive issue in China. Prominent writers Cang Yue and Murong Xuecun are also among the litigants.
