Baidu-beats-Renren-in-second-dominance-case

Dismissing China’s first internet-related anti-monopoly case on 18 December 2009, a Beijing court ruled in favour of Baidu, China’s top search engine, citing not enough evidence of either dominance or abuse of dominance.

The landmark case is only the second court case to be decided under the PRC Anti-Monopoly Law (AML). It was brought by Tangshan Renren Information Service Company, an online platform that links medicine manufacturers with distributors and users.

Renren claimed that by deliberately downgrading it in search engine results, Baidu had abused its dominant market position. Justifying its actions, Baidu alleged that Renren posted junk links to boost its ranking in search results, and that the downgrading was intended to ensure the accuracy and integrity of its service for the benefit of its users.
