n April 2017, for example, the company took technol

ogy giant Tencent to court and asked for 180,000 yuan in compensation after Tencent us

ed nine Visual China Group images without permission, Beijing Youth Daily reported.

Tencent said the images involved could also be found on other webs

ites, or the company could not prove it had authorization for the photos. The court fina

lly ordered Tencent to pay 40,000 yuan to Visual China, the report added.

Wang Weiwei, a lawyer from the Beijing Zhongwen Law Firm, sai

d, “Mushrooming copyright-related disputes can be acceptable if a stock-ima

ge agency, such as Visual China Group, gets authorization for images from copyright owners.

“Any litigation caused by true copyright infringement is no problem and is justifie

d, as it is also to help protect the legitimate rights and interest of the copyright owners,” he said.

Contents regarding collective copyright managem

ent organizations, including stock image platforms, have been debatable and remain a key issue among lawmakers,” she said.

“I believe such copyright agencies will be regulated in the future version of the law after Visual

China’s incident, and our IP protection will also be further strengthened thanks to the case,” she added.

Different from many comments that criticized the company and its business, Chen sai

d it is “Okay” for stock image platforms to profit from selling images or filing copyright lawsuits.

“Proper commercial operations can help defend the rights of individual creators, as it is difficult a

nd costly for individuals to sift through seas of information and find out who infringes their rights,” she said. “Or su

ch platforms create a better environment for copyright owners to easily and effectively safeguard their rights.”

But she suggested the country set up a third-party to supervise

the platforms’ operation to prevent them from exercising the rights beyond the legal scope.

Expat jobs in some sectors increasingreign students see

The service sector, IT and media industries have

overtaken the education industry as major job sources for expat

s in China, according to figures from the 2019 Job Fair for Foreigners in Beijing.

The job fair was organized on Sunday by the Foreign Talent Research Center and the State Administration of Foreign Exper

ts Affairs, attracting more than 500 expats with nearly 1,000 jobs available in a range of professions.

The expat job market, once dominated by language teachers, has seen a major shift. Approximatel

y half the jobs available at the fair were in the sales, media, marketing and IT sectors, including ope

nings for journalists, brand and communication managers and software engineers.

“A certain level of Mandarin proficiency is an advantage,” said Yang Jiayin, project manager of the research center. “The be

st-paying jobs generally require the ability to speak Mandarin. Positions that require fluent spoken and written Ma‘

’ndarin tend to pay more than the same jobs without the language requirement.”

Dinghao Electronics Plaza in Zhongguancun was pu

rchased by a joint venture between Partners Group, The Family Office, SDP Investments, and The Carlyle Group for around 9 billion yuan.

ns a bright spot for investment opportunities in Beijing,” said Michael Wang, head of capital markets for JLL in Beijing.

companies are increasingly choosing to purchase entire buildings to meet large office requirements.”
