China to punish websites for illegal music downloads

China’s Ministry of Culture will penalize 14 popular websites that have provided illegal music downloading software. The most notable amongst this group is Baidu Inc., whose “BiaduMP3” service was found to be in violation of the law.

Gaming companies will also face harsh punishment. 20, including Shenzen Xunlei Network Technology Ltd., have drawn the Ministry’s ire for using allegedly “vulgar” promotional methods to promote their games. No elaboration has been provided in regards to the specific definition of “vulgar.”
