AMSC has announced that China's Supreme People's Court has decided in favour of AMSC on the jurisdiction of AMSC's two software copyright infringement cases against Sinovel Wind Group, Ltd. (Sinovel) and Guotong Electric (Guotong).
The Supreme People's Court ruled that the cases will be heard as copyright infringement cases separate from the commercial arbitration claims. The cases will be heard independently in their respective court systems. These are two of the four legal cases that AMSC brought against Sinovel in late 2011 regarding Sinovel's contractual breaches and AMSC's discovery of intellectual property theft by Sinovel. AMSC is also engaged in a commercial arbitration case and a trade secrets case against Sinovel in China.
