sample"This is a strategic move that will open up luxury to the entire nation," said Federico Marchetti, founder and chief executive of Milan-based YOOX SpA, which created the site for the Giorgio Armani SpA label. Mr. Marchetti said at a news conference that YOOX plans in the next year to open Chinese sites for three or four clients he didn't name. Dolce & Gabbana Srl, Ermenegildo Zegna Holditalia Spa and Valentino SpA are among the e-commerce company's 23 clients.

Other companies—including PPR SA's Gucci, Burberry Group PLC and Italian shoemaker Tod's SpA—say they also have plans to cash in on China's exploding population of online shoppers.

The decision by high-end brands to sell their handbags and clothing directly to Chinese shoppers via the Internet marks an attempt to push deeper into a nation with consumers eager to mark their new wealth by buying flashy labels.

Luxury goods have been available for several years on the Chinese Web. But that generally has been through middlemen who offer an array of brands, many of them out-of-season, rather than directly from the labels. Western sites are available to Chinese shoppers only to a limited degree, in part because not all company sites offer shipping to China. Also, steep Chinese import duties discourage buying from vendors' overseas sites.

sampleJeffrey Yolahem owes his career to the video game “The Prince of Persia.” Growing up in Santa Fe, he loved the game so much he would write additional scripts and stories for the historical adventure just for fun, and as an undergraduate at Yale University, he sought out Jordan Mechner, the game’s creator, for advice about what courses he should take to pursue a career in video game script writing. (The answer? Screenwriting and architecture classes, to better understand the level designs of video games.)

Yolahem, 26, is now the lead writer of the newly released video game “Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.” ‘Brotherhood’ is the latest installment of French video game publisher Ubisoft’s “Assassin’s Creed” franchise, which has sold over 19 million units worldwide. The title continues the adventures of modern-day bartender Desmond Miles and Renaissance-era assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze, whose memories Desmond is able to access through a machine called the Animus. As Ezio, single players must recruit and lead a ‘brotherhood’ of men to fight against the powerful Templar Order and take back the crumbling city of Rome.

sampleDating from the dawn of the Web-video era, the case has divided many in the media and technology worlds. It centers in part on how aggressively YouTube—and by extension video-sharing sites like it—must police what users upload to its servers in order to avoid being liable for any unauthorized clips.

In June, a federal judge in Manhattan ruled strongly in favor of Google's motion for summary judgment, saying YouTube is protected from copyright claims by "safe harbor" provisions in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The 1998 law shields some types of online entities from liability if they meet certain conditions, such as removing content at the request of the copyright holder. "General knowledge that infringement is 'ubiquitious' does not impose a duty on the service provider to monitor or search its service for infringements," the judge wrote.

Viacom, for its part, has claimed that YouTube had intentionally sought to exploit tens of thousands of Viacom's copyrighted works, such as clips of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," and doesn't qualify for those protections. "It is extremely destructive if the precedent is set in the wrong way," Mr. Olson said in an interview.
