Chinese firms ordered to pay Disney, Pixar S$281k for copying Cars

SHANGHAI (REUTERS) - A Shanghai court ordered two Chinese firms to pay Walt Disney Co and Pixar more than 1.35 million yuan (S$281,368) compensation for copying parts of their hit movies Cars and Cars 2, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Saturday (Dec 31). The ruling is the latest in a slew of intellectual property wins for large foreign firms, who have complained about widespread copyright infringement in China. Disney and Pixar took the Chinese firms to court saying the characters, titles and posters from local animation The Autobots were substantially similar to those from Cars and Cars 2. The court agreed that the Autobots characters K1 and K2 were similar to Disney and Pixar's animated cars Lightning McQueen and Francesco Bernoulli, Xinhua said. 11-40810868.1_40810908_-_08_12_2016_-_china-patent-trademark-jordan-basketball.jpg Related Story Basketball: Micha...
