Visual property in dispute again

In recent year, a couple of cases were brought to the court regarding stealing the visual property (such as weapons, helmets) generated from the visual games or created in the visual communities. It is difficult to draw a line between the so-called visual property and the other intangible property, but misappropriation of the visual property is hardly an intellectual property infringement.

The most popular instant message system “QQ” (whose logo is two cute penguins) is suing a large online auction site “Tao Bao” (looking for your fortune) for infringing copyright by allowing the users to sell QQ numbers and Q currency on its platform. Meanwhile, Tao Bao brought a non-infringement suit in another court against QQ. QQ (previously called OICQ) was developed initially as the Chinese version of the ICQ.

Visual crimes are drawing people’s attention.

    I do consider all of the ideas you’ve offered for your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. May just you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
