Bejing Painter Sued China Unicom for Copyright Infringement

Beijing painter Zhao Chengwei sued China Unicom and its subsidiary Guangxi Unicom. Beijing No.2 Intermediary People's Court will rule on this alleged copyright infringement case, according to www.chinanews.com.cn.

"Guangxi Unicom used Zhao's drawings on its IP telephone cards without his permission in July 2005. The drawings were profiles of characters from Cao Xueqin's Dream of the Red Chamber, one of China's most famous novels. Zhao contacted China Unicom and Guangxi Unicom, but did not receive a satisfactory answer. Zhao is seeking a public apology and 730,000 Yuan in compensation from China Unicom."
