UPDATED (11 August 2012, 11:15am to report amended claim)
Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) amended its claim against Yahoo! on Friday to say that the internet company allegedly reproduced 254 articles from its stable of newspapers without permission.
In its copyright infringement suit filed against Yahoo! in November, SPH had only cited 23 articles.
Yahoo! has denied the allegations.
SPH’s amended claim comes after Yahoo! reached a settlement in its counterclaim against SPH on the publication of Yahoo!'s original material on the Singapore media firm's STOMP site without permission.
In line with the settlement, Yahoo! has withdrawn its counterclaim, and each party will bear their own legal costs.
Singaporean director Anthony Chen described as “surreal” the 15-minute standing ovation that followed the world premiere of his debut feature film "Ilo Ilo" at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. Though the ending of the premiere couldn’t have been more perfect, the 29-year-old Chen said the beginning was quite “nerve-wrecking” as it was marred by technical glitches.
