Ten BIC cases included in 2022 cases of the year
A collection of cases of the year in 2022 among courts in China was released by the Judicial Cases Research Institute of the Supreme People's Court recently. Ten cases heard by the Beijing Internet Court (BIC) were included.
A total of 1,190 cases divided into 23 volumes were adopted by the annual book, covering areas of criminal, civil, administrative and enforcement in trial work.
The ten cases from the BIC involved common internet disputes in areas such as infringement of personality rights and intellectual property rights, and disputes arising from sales contracts. The trial of those cases demonstrated the court’s resolution to protect the legitimate rights and interests of citizens in the internet era and to guide the development of new business models in the new economy.
