Mobile Game Developers Sue Baidu for Piracy

Tencent Tech, 11/11/11

Chinese mobile game developers' industry association Content Provider Union (CPU) recently filed a lawsuit against internet company Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU) for over RMB 30 mln in damages, claiming that pirated copies of more than 300 titles developed by CPU members are available on Baidu servers.

Baidu responded by saying that all games featured on its mobile site (m.baidu.com) are available on third-party websites and that Baidu does not upload any IPR infringing copies to its site, instead using specific technology to enable users a fast and stable download connection to third-party developer sites.
