Xunlei to Sue Sohu for Copyright Violations

Sina Tech, 10/26/09

Chinese online P2P video service provider Xunlei has completed collecting evidence of copyright infringement by Chinese Internet firm Sohu (Nasdaq: SOHU), and plans to file charges today in Beijing's Haidian District People's Court and Shenzhen's Nanshan District People's Court.

Luo Weimin, COO of Xunlei, said the suit was mainly directed at the continuing appearance of cracked versions of Xunlei's proprietary software in results generated by the search engine Sogou, which is owned by Sohu. Luo denied the lawsuit had any connection to the announcement that the "China Internet Video Anti-Piracy Alliance," which is led by Sohu, plans to sue Xunlei for copyright infringement.
