MPAA: Google Should Help Stop Chinese Piracy

Now that Google owns a stake in Shenzhen Xunlei Network Technology Ltd., the search giant should urge the Chinese video site to quell piracy, says the MPAA.

Xunlei provides software that is used by some to download pirated movies, said the MPAA. The site itself includes access to movies such as Time Warner's "Flags of Our Fathers." Google is counting on Xunlei's 120 million users to help it gain traction against Baidu, which holds about 65 percent market share in China.

The MPAA won three infringement cases in China last month against companies including, the nation's third-biggest Internet portal. |
