A civil action proceeding arising from Yahoo China's uninstall of Netpig cross-word search function was eventually started. Zhongsou.com said Dec. 5 it has lodged a lawsuit in the Haidian District People's Court on Dec. 2 requiring Yahoo China to immediately stop infringing on zhongsou.com with its Yisou Tool Bar, publicly apologize to zhongsou.com and restore users' Netpig search function affected by it. Yahoo China said it has not received any relevant legal documents regarding the matter.
Zhongsou said since Nov. 17 Yahoo China, taking advantage of upgrading its Yisou Tool Bar, has wantonly deleted zhongsou.com Netpig's cross-word search function resulting in users unable to use normally the cross-word search function and serious infringement on Netpig users' interests. Zhongsou.com has received many complaints from users and cooperation partners for this.
