5fad Sues Baidu in US, 6/11/08

On June 10th, Hangzhou-based music website 5fad filed suit against Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU) in New York accusing the company of copyright infringement in its MP3 search. The court has already accepted the case, which is 5fad's sixth lawsuit against Baidu. Prior to this it has already lost five lawsuits against Baidu.

5fad has requested the court to issue an order shutting down Baidu's MP3 search. It requests that Baidu immediately cease any direct or indirect infringement of its copyrighted works, stop assisting or participating in this type of infringement, and asks for compensation for its economic losses.
