Chinese video streaming firm Youku Tudou Inc., a unit of internet giant Alibaba, has won a copyright infringement lawsuit it filed against TikTok-like app Kuaishou, with the victory coming after regulators vowed to tighten oversight of such violations by users on short video platforms.

Hong Kong-listed Kuaishou was ordered by the Beijing Internet Court on Monday to pay Youku compensation of 460,000 yuan ($72,200) for allowing users to upload content from TV romance series “Skate Into Love” without Youku’s consent, according to a statement provided to Caixin by Alibaba Digital Media and Entertainment Group.
