Baidu was sued on Dec. 25, 2008 by Qmyy.com for
monopoly, the China Daily reported. Qmyy.com,
China's first online information platform linking
medicine manufacturers with distributors and users,
said Baidu blocked its web pages from appearing on
the engine's search results. Qmyy.com required
Baidu to stop blocking its web pages and pay
RMB 1.106 million as compensation, the report said.
Qmyy.com said on its website that Beijing First
Intermediate People's Court accepted the case on
Dec. 26. According to Li Changqing, the representative
lawyer for Qmyy.com, the company was forced to sue
Baidu due to out-of-court settlement failing.
