The defendant said that both the adaptation and production of the film Fanghua had legitimate sources.
New Beijing Daily reported on April 12 that more than a year after its hit, the film Fanghua was sued for infringement. The plaintiff, Mr. Xiao, believed that the film had copied his script Redemption of Lammga and filed a claim of more than 3 million yuan against the copyright party and director Feng Xiaogang in court. In todays (April 11) afternoon trial, the four defendantsrepresentatives said that the film, adapted from the novel of the same name, had signed an agreement with Yan Geling, the author of the original novel Fanghua, which had legal sources and demanded that the prosecution be dismissed.
The plaintiff, Mr. Xiao, complained that in January 2015, he independently created Redemption of Lammga and sent the script to Hu on January 8, 2015. He hoped that Hu would recommend the script to Feng Xiaogang. The defendant believed that Feng Xiaogang was the director of the film Fanghua and Yan Geling was the playwright, which proved that the film came from the novel Fanghua and had not touched Xiaos play Ranmgas Redemption.
In view of the need for additional submissions and opinions from both sides, the case will be reopened at another date.
