The Hangzhou Internet Court non-stop on Friday and listened a initial box – a copyright transgression brawl between an online author and a web company.
Legal agents in Hangzhou and Beijing accessed a justice around their computers and a hearing lasted 20 minutes.
The court’s concentration will be polite cases, including online selling disputes.
Judges were sworn in and a initial box was presented on a vast shade in a courtroom.
Defendants and plaintiffs seem before a decider not in person, though around video-chat.
