Xunlei had alegedly violated the "rights of network promulgation and reaping profit," off Youdu promulgation rights.

Youdu, which is a content provider for broadband users, paid 600,000 yuan to get the network promulgation rights for a Chinese blockbuster film. The agreement allowed the company to provide the movie for download for one month. Xunlei however did not have rights yet provided download links on its site for free.

In early June Youdu sued Xunlei asking for monetary damages and the case has finally been settled.
