I hope this doesn't put too much of a damper on things...
Baidu.com Inc., China's biggest Internet search engine and part-owned by Google Inc., is being sued by two local companies over alleged copyright infringement, ahead of its planned first-time share sale in the U.S.
"The copyright issue has cast great uncertainty over Baidu's future business models and revenue," said Gu Feng, a technology analyst at Shenyin Wanguo Securities Co. in Shanghai. "This is something investors should take into account."
