Baidu Will Add Anti-Piracy Technology To Its Books Product [reuters.com]
Baidu Inc , China's largest search engine, said on Thursday it would introduce anti-piracy technology for its document and books product in May, countering criticism that the firm has been lax in dealing with copyright-infringing material.

Baidu, which has about 70 percent of China's search market by revenue, was criticised last week by authors who demanded that the firm remove numerous copyright-infringing books and documents found on its Baidu Library product.

Baidu said the technology took more than four months of research and would enter a testing phase in April before a full release on May 1st.

"The technology will not only enable Baidu Library to systematically eliminate copyright-infringing content already uploaded on its platform, but will also enable automatic rejection of future problematic uploads," Baidu's spokesman Kaiser Kuo said in a statement to Reuters.
