“Beijing High People’s Court has accepted Founder Electronics’ case.

Founder Electronics is asking for compensation of 100 million yuan for the alleged infringement – the largest amount claimed by a Chinese company in a copyright case.

Founder Electronics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Founder Group, is the nation’s largest font supplier and has developed hundreds of multi-language fonts that are widely used in the country.

It alleges its fonts were illegally used in Blizzard’s popular online game World of Warcraft.

The game is operated by NASDAQ-listed The9 Ltd, a Shanghai-based.”
