Hyperlinks & Internet Law in China

There is not much information available about how China's internet law deals with hyperlinks. Computer World Hongkonk reports a case against ISP Soho: "The Court ducked the issue as to whether hyperlinks may constitute copyright infringement by simply holding that no law in China definitively provides that hyperlinks constitute copyright infringement." Another articles mentiones the case Liu Jinsheng v Sohu Aitexin Infor-Tech (Beijing) Co Ltd. The defendant was held liable for three hyperlinks to websites, that contained an anauthorized translation of Don Quixote.
