New Face At Baidu Awaits Considerable Intellectual Property Conflicts

Ms Loretta Chao of the WSJ's China Journal wrote about the appointment of the new general manager digital entertainment of, Inc., Catherine Leung.
The blog article ends with a most relevant paragraph:

"The company has tried to solve its intellectual property conflicts by signing revenue-sharing deals to share profits from advertisements on its digital music search services with individual music labels. In many cases, this tactic has worked. Still, the most recent lawsuit filed by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry on behalf of several music labels that haven’t signed deals with the search company is still awaiting a decision from Chinese courts."

It is clear that the new face at Baidu will get a lot of work in regard to Baidu's intellectual property conflicts.
