Last week we blogged about Baidu's IPO announcement and included a link to Matt Marshall's post that included a discussion of possible copyright issues that Baidu might face as a company traded in the US. Apparently copyright concerns were also a major issue for Baidu execs especially after hearing from a music licensing organization. Today, word from Shanghai that Baidu is removing links to as many as 50,000 pirated music files.
R2G Chief Operating Officer Scarlett Li told the newspaper that Baidu had taken out Web links to more than 3,000 music files of a single popular Chinese song alone. She added that the search engine was also looking into links to more than 50,000 files.
