MOSCOW, April 23 - RAPSI. The Supreme Commercial Court will not revise the judgment banning the Yandex search engine from using Mikhail Lvov's Dictionary of Russian Antonyms.
The Moscow Commercial Court prohibited Yandex from using the dictionary after the AST-Press Kniga publishing house sued the company in June.
The court recovered 500,000 rubles ($17,854) from Yandex for copyright infringement.
The publisher told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.ru) that the defendant unlawfully placed Lvov's dictionary on its website after it was issued in 2008.
The publisher entered into an agreement with Lvov in 2002 to publish the dictionary in the book format. AST-Press Kniga received in 2006 the exclusive rights to use the dictionary in any media, including the Internet.
Established in 1990, AST-Press comprises publishing and trade organizations, according to its website.
