A recent case concerning Wechat plagiarism is currently being investigated in the city of Shenzhen in South China's Guangdong Province.
The case has been regarded as the 'most costly' wechat plagiarism case so far, since the plaintiff, an official Wechat account named 'Ayawawa', has made a 200,000 yuan (or 32,000 U.S. dollars) damage claim.
According to staff working on the case, three official accounts have been accused of plagiarizing 'Ayawawa''s 160 articles in the past 5 months.
Two of those accounts are operated by the same company in east China's Zhejiang Province.
However, the three accounts under investigation continue to update information. However, they have not mentioned anything about the plagiarism case.
Experts have urged the articles' original authors to work together to safeguard their legal rights and interests.
Earlier in March, a plan to provide legal assistance for protecting original authors' copyrights were released.
