The Ginde Plastic Pipe Industry Group (www.ginde.com)
won a lawsuit against Baidu, for allowing searches of its
brand name to return articles with negative recommendations.
The Beijing Haidian District People's court considered that
infringing on Ginde's trademark rights, though Baidu argued
its search technology automatically matches queries to links
users have visited with high frequency.
The court did not impose a fine or order compensation to be
paid. Baidu is to display an apology on its website for 3 days,
instead. Baidu is appealing the ruling.
