Lang Van Files Lawsuit Against International Data Group, IDG Ventures, IDG Ventures Vietnam and VNG Corp

Lang Van filed suit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California as plaintiff against defendants International Data Group (IDG), IDG Ventures, IDG Ventures Vietnam and VNG Corporation (VNG) in a case of copyright infringement. As stated in the complaint, Zing.vn (Zing), a VNG-owned and operated website and one of Vietnam's entertainment portals, illegally makes more than 3,000 Lang Van-owned recordings and 600 albums available for streaming or download around the globe. According to the complaint, the U.S.-based fund IDG Ventures, through its Vietnamese investment vehicle IDG Ventures Vietnam, directly contributed to the exponential growth of Zing.vn's website as well as the launch of the Zing Music website, bringing its business expertise, guidance and financial backing to help VNG grow. The investment also allowed IDG Ventures Vietnam to install its own managing general partner, Nguyen Bao Hoang, to the VNG Board of Directors. This investment paved the way for Zing.vn's rapid growth.
