Dacheng partner represents in copyright claim deemed important by Supreme People’s Court
The Supreme People’s Court has published a selected list of seven cases that have been tried in Chinese courts in recent years and resulted in a major impact on people’s lives, which included a case in which Dacheng senior partner Wang Dengshan provided sucessful representation of Chinese literary giant Yang Jiang in obtaining a pre-litigation injunction against copyright infringement.
In the case — Yang Jikang (pen name: Yang Jiang) v Beijing Sungari International Auction Co Ltd and Li Guoqiang — the court issued a first-ever injunction against the auction company that had intended to publicly auction manuscripts of Qian Zhongshu’s letters in an effort to effectively protect the author’s moral rights.
