China Sued Over Web Music Piracy

From BBC News:

The trade body representing the global record industry has launched piracy lawsuits against China’s biggest internet companies.

Firms targeted in the legal action include Baidu, China’s largest internet business, and Yahoo China, in which US giant Yahoo has a 44% stake.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry says the firms offer direct links to pirated music.

It estimates that 99% of all music files in China are pirated.
