Liu Jingsheng v. Sohu Aitexin Information Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd.

Liu Jingsheng filed a lawsuit against Sohu Aitexin Information Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Sohu) for the dispute over copyright infringement. The defendant provided a link to the work of the plaintiff on his webpage which can be accessed by the general public, without the permission of the plaintiff. The court ruled that providing the link itself does not constitute infringement, but after the plaintiff informed the defendant, the defendant did not adopt any measures to delete the link which was held to constitute auxiliary infringement. Upon acceptance, this court formed a collegial bench and publicly heard this case. Liu Jingsheng and Xu Bin appeared in the court proceedings. Now, the trial of this case has been completed.
