Yahoo Countersues Singapore Publisher on Copyright

December 14, 2011

Yahoo Inc. has denied allegations of copyright infringement and countersued Singapore Press Holdings Ltd. for using its content without authorization.

Yahoo Southeast Asia said in a document filed with the High Court on Tuesday that copyright law does not protect facts and information.

Yahoo said in its counterclaim that SPH used its articles and photographs without its permission.

SPH sued Yahoo last month for copyright infringement for allegedly reproducing content from its newspapers without authorization.

SPH dominates the city-state’s print media and publishes 18 newspapers in four languages and more than 100 magazines.
