Topic: Judicial Interpretation on Secondary Liability on the Internet
On April 11, 2012, China’s Supreme People’s Court issued a draft judicial interpretation (JI) entitled, Regulations Concerning the Applicability of Laws in the Adjudication of Civil Disputes Related to Infringement of Rights of Transmission over Information Network, for comments. The draft JI states that when ISPs abet and assist network users to infringe the rights of others over an information network, they shall be held joint and severally liable. When they “know or should have known” that their network’s users are infringing, the ISPs have committed contributory infringement. Please join us as Sharon Qiao, partner at Lusheng Law Firm in Beijing, discusses the JI and what it may mean for the music industry.
