Singapore Press Holdings Sues Yahoo for Copyright Infringement

By: Liau Yun Qing | zdnetasia.com

Singapore media organization Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Yahoo for reproducing content from its stable of newspapers. The Web giant has refuted the charge, however, saying it intends to “vigorously defend” itself.

Local broadsheet The Straits Times, which is published by SPH, reported on Wednesday that Yahoo’s Southeast Asia editorial department has “substantially” reproduced articles from its newspapers without proper licensing or authorization. It has since filed the copyright lawsuit with the Singapore High Court last Friday, and the writ and statement of claim were served on Yahoo Southeast Asia on Monday.
