(标题)Furor over 'black hole' photo forces China's largest image provider to shut

对“黑洞”照片的愤怒迫使中国最大的图像提供商关闭



SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China’s largest stock images provider, Visual China Group, shut its website and apologized on Friday after it falsely claimed copyright of images such as the first photo of a black hole and China’s national flag.

路透上海8月24日电---中国最大的商业图片提供商中国视觉集团上周五关闭了网站,并为此前该公司谎称自己拥有黑洞和中国国旗等图片的版权道歉。



The company said it had obtained a non-exclusive editing license from the project for media use.

该公司表示,已从该项目获得非独家编辑许可证,以供媒体使用。

Other users also questioned why the company was asking for payment for the use of images like China’s flag and logos of Chinese companies such as Baidu.

其他用户也质疑,为什么百度要求支付使用中国国旗和百度等中国公司标志的费用。

The Tianjin city branch of China’s internet watchdog said on Weibo that it had met the company’s leaders on Thursday evening and ordered them to rectify its website.

中国互联网监督机构天津市分局在微博上表示,已于周四晚会见了公司领导,并要求他们修改其网站。

Visual China acknowledged that its website had issues with non-compliant pictures which it said had been provided by contractors, and pledged to “learn from these lessons”.

VisualChina承认其网站存在与承包商提供的不合规图片有关的问题,并承诺“从中吸取教训”。

IP RIGHTS

知识产权

Elliot Papageorgiou, the Shanghai-based head of the IP practice at law firm Clyde & Co., said Visual China’s use of the black hole image was embarrassing due to the photo’s high profile.

克莱德律师事务所驻上海的知识产权业务负责人帕帕耶奥尔尤表示,由于这张照片的高知名度,视觉中国使用黑洞图像显得很愚蠢。
