‘Super Girl’ producers sued on IPR – Angela Xu

From Shanghai Daily, via China Daily (link):

THE organizer of the popular TV show “Super Girl” is being sued for allegedly violating the copyright of a former employee who wrote the hit show’s theme song, by allowing the song to be performed in public without paying any royalties to the writer.

The Shanghai No. 1 Intermediate People’s Court has accepted the case, and the Music Copyright Society of China, which represents song writer Xu Wenya, exchanged evidence with defendant Shanghai EE Media Co Ltd yesterday.

EE Media and three other companies organized a Super Girl concert in the city on October 6 last year. The song “Xiang Chang Jiu Chang” was performed in the concert but the organizers refused to pay Xu.
