AMSC says that China's Supreme People's Court has scheduled a hearing for Oct. 26 for AMSC's cases against Sinovel Wind Group Co. Ltd. for alleged copyright infringement.

The hearing relates to the Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court's decision to reject Sinovel's request to dismiss AMSC's copyright-infringement case on jurisdictional grounds. The Beijing Higher Court later upheld the Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court’s decision, prompting Sinovel's appeal to China's Supreme People's Court.

In this case, AMSC is seeking approximately $6 million in compensation and has asked for a cease-and-desist order on the alleged infringing of intellectual property.

This is one of four legal cases that AMSC brought against Sinovel in September 2011. In total, AMSC is seeking to recover from Sinovel more than $1.2 billion for what it says are contracted shipments and damages.
