搜狐周二威胁要起诉Google侵犯知识产权,并且重申了要求Google停止下载中文输入法(IME)软件的要求。

  搜狐在声明中表示:“我们对Google这样的在业界领先的美国公司在中国对知识产权完全不尊重表示遗憾,他们来自一个尊重知识产权的国家。



我们要求Google停止侵犯搜狐拼音输入法的知识产权并且停止下载和运营Google拼音输入法,否则,我们将对Google采取法律手段。”  搜狐对Google侵犯中国知识产权的批评时机很巧。美国贸易代表周一宣布,计划向世贸组织就中国对美国公司拥有的版权保护不力提出申诉

Sohu threatens to sue Google over copycat software
By: Sumner Lemon
IDG News Service (SingaporeBureau)  (11 Apr2007)

Sohu.comInc. Tuesday threatened to sue Google Inc. for violating itsintellectual property rights, and renewed a demand for the companyto stop downloads of a Chinese software tool based, in part, on oneof its own databases.

"We arevery sorry that a leading U.S. company like Google, which comesfrom a country that respects intellectual property rights, hasexhibited a complete disregard for intellectual property in China,"Sohu said.

"We demandGoogle stop infringing on Sogou Pinyin Input Method Editor (IME)intellectual property and cease downloads and the operation ofGoogle Pinyin IME, otherwise we will bring legal charges againstGoogle," the statement said.

A GoogleChina spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request forcomment. Earlier, the company acknowledged it had used part of aSohu database in its Pinyin IME, saying it was "inadvertenly"incorporated into the software.

IMEs allowusers to type Chinese characters using their Pinyin romanizationequivalents, and are found on most computers in China.

Whilesimilar tools have been around for years, Sohu was the first todraw on a database of popular search queries, compiled by its Sogousearch engine, to predict which Chinese words and names a user islooking for. The improved speed and accuracy that resulted fromthis technique made the Sogou Pinyin IME, released last year, afavorite of millions of Chinese Internet users.

Inaddition, the tool offers a search button that links to the SogouWeb site and is visible on a user's desktop almost all the time.That helps explain why Google developed a competing product.

Googlereleased its Pinyin IME last week and users soon discovered it wasbased, in part, on a dictionary of Chinese words and names drawnfrom the Sogou Pinyin IME. Faced with overwhelming evidence that ithad copied parts of Sohu's dictionary, which had not been madepublic or licensed for use outside Sohu, Google made changes to itsdictionary over the weekend and issued an apology to Sohu. Googlehas not offered an explanation for how it obtained Sohu'sdatabase.

OnFriday, Sohu sent a letter to Google, demanding the company stopdownloads of the Google Pinyin IME, issue an apology and discusscompensation for Sohu or face legal action. While Google's recentactions appeared to satisfy some of those conditions and avoid thepossibility of a legal battle, Sohu feels the U.S. Internet companyhas not gone far enough in making restitution.

Sohu'scriticism of Google's respect for Chinese intellectual propertyrights comes at an awkward time. On Monday, the U.S. TradeRepresentative announced plans to bring a World Trade Organizationcomplaint against China, charging that the country has not doneenough to protect copyrights held by U.S. companies.
