SinaTech, 11/05/07

In a decision that will have an impact for online Chinese media outlets, the Nanshan District People's Court of Shenzhen, Guangdong province, has ruled that the common practice of using digital images from other websites without permission or authorization, constitutes copyright infringement. The court ordered Chinese Internet portal, operated by Tencent (0700.HK), to immediately cease using and transmitting all images owned by Tungstar, and to pay RMB 15,000 in compensation and expenses.
