Microsoft Investigating Questions over MSN China joint venture's Juku feature

Microsoft Investigating Questions over MSN China joint venture's Juku feature

 

At Microsoft, we take intellectual property very seriously. We make our IP available for others to license, and we license other people's intellectual property as appropriate when we use it in our products.

 

Earlier today, questions arose over a feature developed by a third-party vendor for our MSN China joint venture. We are working with our MSN China joint venture to investigate the situation.

 

Unfortunately, when these questions first arose, it was the middle of the night in China. Now that the day has begun in China, our teams are working hard to track down the information.

 

Here's what we know at this point. Our MSN China joint venture contracted with an independent vendor to create a feature called MSN Juku that allowed MSN users to find friends via microblogging and online games. This MSN Juku feature was made available to MSN China users in November and is still in beta.

 

Because questions have been raised about the code base comprising the service, MSN China will be suspending access to the Juku beta feature temporarily while we investigate the matter fully.

 

We will provide additional information as we learn more.
