Are we finally about to see our own RIAA-like cases here in China? A CCTV affiliate called China International Television Corp. has now sued six online video service providers in the Beijing Haidian District Court. It is asking for 16.2 million RMB in compensation for the illegal broadcasting of its shows online. According to China Tech News, CCTV claims that its distribution of TV soap operas has declined last year thanks to these online video sites. But a representative of one of the providers, ku6.com, said that most of the videos on their website were uploaded by Internet users – a defense that hasn’t really had a history of working well in the States. Welp, even if our favorite vid sites shut down, maybe this also means we’ll be getting something similar to Hulu for Chinese soap operas soon.
