Chinese internet company Baidu's (Nasdaq: BIDU) joint-venture online video site Qiyi today rebranded under the name "iQiyi," and Qiyi.com now automatically redirects to iQiyi.com.
Editor's Note: Ding Mei, head of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Radio and Television's online department, has confirmed that Qiyi had been using Baidu's Online Audio-Visual Broadcasting License number for nearly two years in violation of government regulations. Qiyi has now obtained its own license number under the new name iQiyi.
