Tencent Fined for Infringing Music Content

Beijing Daily, 12/20/12

A Chinese court has ruled in favor of the Music Copyright Society of China in its case against Shenzhen-based internet company Tencent (0700.HK) for providing downloads of copyrighted music, and has ordered Tencent to pay RMB 15,000 in damages.

The MCSC claimed that Tencent has offered online streaming and downloads of unlicensed songs through its QQ chat application, Soso search engine, and other properties for years, as well as including online music-streaming services in its widely used QQ service.
