The lowdown on Lang Van’s massive $400 million lawsuit to obliterate Vietnam’s VNG

The biggest lawsuit against a Vietnamese tech company ever is now going down in Boston, Massachusetts. The American record company Lang Van just filed against venture capital firm IDG in an attempt to get at VNG, which is a major consumer web and mobile company in Vietnam.  VNG has faced many lawsuits in the past already. According to Lang Van’s press release, Zing, VNG’s major social media and music platform, has faced up to 590 infringement cases. But this latest lawsuit is notable because it is being filed in the States. VNG, and its venture capitalist firm IDG Ventures Vietnam, are going to have to legally defend themselves there. It will not be protected by Vietnam’s still evolving copyright laws.
