A crowd-sourced translation of The Lost Symbol: is this copyright infringement?

Dan Brown's latest novel, The Lost Symbol, was released on September 15. His last book, The Da Vinci Code, was wildly popular in China and propelled translations of his earlier novels onto bestseller lists as well. The latest thriller, which follows the further adventures of intrepid symbologist Robert Langdon, should sell well over here too.Once it's translated, that is. People's Literature Publishing House expects a Chinese edition to be on shelves sometime in 2010.Chinese Internet users can't wait that long, so Yeeyan, a collaborative translation website, has launched a project to crowd-source the translation of The Lost Symbol into Chinese. They've already posted the prologue and the first two chapters.
