NavInfo Co. Ltd.’s Winning of a Damages Award for Copyright Infringement Case

Fangda advised NavInfo on the case.

NavInfo Co. Ltd., a market-leading Chinese navigation software and map company, completed a successful copyright infringement claim against three Baidu companies found to be using “substantially similar software” without permission.

The Beijing Intellectual Property Court awarded NavInfo RMB64.5 million (US$9.8 million) in damages. In addition the court granted an injunction enjoining the Baidu companies from infringement and ordered the defendants to issue a public apology.

NavInfo, founded in 2002, is the market leader in navigation maps, navigation software development, dynamic traffic information, location big data, and customized connected vehicle services for both passengers and commercial vehicles.

The Fangda team was led by partner Alexandra (Pu) Yang (Picture).
