Baidu, somewhat famous for it's illegal downloads aswell as being a target for western Search investment has taken a right good kickin' from four of the largest record companies over providing links to copyrighted songs.

Universal Music Group, EMI Group Plc and Warner Music Group Corp. filed their suits in July in Beijing to stop Baidu from providing those links, a spokesman for the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry said. Sony BMG Music Entertainment filed its suit earlier this month.

Pssst... Baidu... Once you IPO, you've got to behave yourself you know?
