A Chinese court has fined Apple Inc $160,400 over a copyright infringement, saying the company sold pirated electronic books via its App Store.

Earlier in the year, a group of Chinese authors filed the suit against Apple after they spotted several apps in the App Store containing pirated electronic versions of their books.

Apple pledged it does its best to protect copyright. “We’re always updating our service to better assist content owners in protecting their rights,” Apple spokeswoman Carolyn Wu said.
