China: Copyright Compensation for Using Screenshots from Games (2015)

Hello! Looks like I am going to revive this blog. :) I have just stumbled upon a Chinese case of 2015 (Court of first instance: Xicheng District People’s Court No.:(2010)西民初字第18215号) where a company which published a game guide with screenshots faces compensation award of more than RMB 100000. Fair use seemed not work, as I can guess, for the reason of commercial publishing of the guide. More details in a more authentic source.
