Bi Shumin v. Huaibei City Experimental High School - Case on Copyright Infringement

The defendant, a school, used the plaintiff's work without prior authorisation. The court decided that reasonable use for academic activities which is covered by the Copyright Law cannot surpass the needs of the classrooms, and cannot bring a loss to the right holder during market transactions. The defendant's act does not constitute reasonable use, and should therefore be held as an infringement of copyright.
