A Chinese court has ordered Baidu to pay over 3 million yuan to a Shanghai consultancy firm. In April, Shanghai Hantao Information Consultancy Co, operator of Dianping.com, sought compensation for losses caused by Baidu for copying information from the website. Originally demanding 90 million yuan, it was judged that Hantao had been directly affected by Baidu’s actions, which had decreased the number of visitors to Dianping.com. The American search engine Google was more successful with its recent court battle, after a jury judged that it had not broken copyright on its Java programming language. In 2010, the software company Oracle argued that Google had broken the law, seeking 9 billion US dollars in damages.
