Recommended Posts

The Original Version: 


HUAWEI's version for their MediaPad M3 Lite



Engadget Link "Huawei plagiarized a music video and turned it into a tablet ad"



Do you think Nigel John Stanford, the creator of the original music video can win a copyright lawsuit against HUAWEI?

This company is hilarious. Just when you think you've heard it all. They keep on giving.

Doesn't seem like they're directly ripping off of the video (making clips and posting it in their own). The concept isn't really owned by anyone (or at least, it shouldn't) since it's just playing with sound.

To put it simply: lolno. 

Huawei is based in China, a country known for having minimal copyright laws.

If the trial was held in China, the creator probably wouldn't get a fair trial and if the trial was held outside of China then I doubt much action would be taken against Huawei.

I'm not liable for anything that may happen to you and your PC if you decide to follow my advice. Take everything I say with a grain of salt, some things may not be correct.

solution: research what's seditious in china and incorporate that in the work, so copying it would go against their laws and not copying those parts would lose the nuances and be written off as lousy ripoffs


which is why my first novel* will have gay people in it


i'm talking out of my ass here, but feel free to point out the failings in this train of thought because.....

Not if Huawei licensed the piece.


It's interesting that after 9 replies no one has thought that maybe they did it legit.   You know companies do that all the time.

QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Is it technically illegal to copy something shot for shot? They use different props, actors, music, cameras, and so on. So it's all their own stuff unless it would be considered stealing an idea? But can you patent a shot list?

What you see there is a substantial copy of Nigel's original artwork. His copyright was infringed. For a western world, it is serious. For Chima, especially when it comes to foreigners... and taking into account Huawei's power in the area - no chances. It would be even enormously difficult to find a lawyer that has no interest conflict with Huawei. The maximum compensation for copyright infringement in Chana is 7000 dollars if you win the case while it would cost 200 000 - 300 000 dollars to develop a case.. I am in the same position. My copyright was infringed by a JAPANESE company that designed an enormously large ceiling for Huawei's headquarters in Shenzhen.  Theu offered compensation that does not reflect the scale of the project and changed the design.
