Mice Love Rice Copyright Dispute Solved

Yang Chengang, the composer of the song Mice Love Rice, must have thought that companies and singers are like mice and the assignment of the copyright of his song like rice. But instead of rice, which you can divide, he assigned the copyright five times. A lot of litigation followed and Yang apologised, but it was not the end of the disputes. Read the CRI English article here (7 pages).

I have listened to the litigious song. Sounds good to me.

Finally record company Hurray! Freeland has signed a copyright assignment contract to become the official right owner of ''Mice Love Rice'' under PRC copyright law. Read here.
