There have been three rounds of talks between Google and Chinese writers whose works were copied by the Internet giant without authorization. The fourth round of talks is expected to begin soon. Discussions are likely to touch upon more essential points of the issue.

The book list provided by Google is the latest achievement from the first three rounds of negotiations. The talks fell into stalemate earlier, as the company refused to admit having "infringed" upon copyright laws. But Chinese authors did not give up on efforts to protect their copyrights.

Zhang Hongbo, Director-General of China Written Work Copyright Society, said, "We invited patent experts and lawyers who are familiar with both Chinese and American law to analyze the issue. They say Google's stance is unstable."
