Macao artist Liang Wannian has been awarded RMB 80,000 compensation from a former assistant who fraudulently claimed to have created a jade sculpture (滴翠盈银) by himself.

Liang donated the sculpture to the Great Hall of the People in Beijing in 2009, but only discovered last year that his one-time assistant, whose name has not been made public, had since been taking sole credit on the internet and mainland TV shows, although he had only assisted.

Liang then filed a copyright infringement case at the court in Zhaoqing, Guangdong, where he was awarded RMB 80,000, The Macau Post Daily reported.
