NetEase’s Cloud Village Sues Rival Tencent Music Again Citing Unfair Competition
The long-running head-to-head battle between China’s two biggest online music platforms has intensified, again.
NetEase’s music unit Cloud Village sued Tencent Music Entertainment, accusing it of unfair competition and plagiarizing its app design, the company said Wednesday. Cloud Village didn’t respond to a Caixin inquiry on where the lawsuit was filed.
The defendants also include Tencent’s music platforms QQ Music, Kugou Music, Kuwo Music and online karaoke service WeSing. In a 3,000-word statement filled with photographic documentation, Cloud Village accused the apps of maliciously infringing its copyrights, repeatedly copying its product designs and functions and resisting against rectification.
