Chinese Search Engine Zhongsou Fined Over Music Copyrights [dmwmedia.com]

Zhongsou, one of the top five search engines in China, has been found guilty of copyright infringement and ordered to pay record labels over $14,000 in damages, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), a record label trade group.

...

The IFPI says Zhongsou was running a music delivery service similar to those offered by Yahoo China and Baidu, the country's largest search engine, adding that "this type of service has already been ruled to infringe copyright by Chinese civil courts in December 2007."
