Beijing: Animation studio files complaint in Haidian

Shanghai Animation Film Studio recently filed a copyright complaint against Zhejiang Radio and TV Group and video portal iQiyi with the Haidian district court in Beijing. The studio, owner of animation series Calabash Brothers, claimed that the Zhejiang group profited from viewers' nostalgic feelings toward the TV series popular in the 1980s by using a great deal of its scenes, roles, props and music in an episode of reality show Running Man produced by the group without authorization. iQiyi allowed the TV program to be broadcast on its online platform.
