A Beijing court has ordered Yahoo China to delete links to free Web sites offering music-downloads and to pay about 200,000 yuan ($27,200) for facilitating distribution of unlicensed songs by other sites.
But in its ruling, Beijing’s No. 2 Intermediate Court said Yahoo China was not itself responsible for copyright infringement because all the music was downloaded from servers of third-party Web sites, Xinhua news agency reported on Tuesday.
Yahoo China said in a statement it would file an appeal.
