Clayton Antitrust Act of Copyright infringement is not theft, conversion, or fraud; illegally made copies are not stolen goods. Compared to the decision of the court of first instance, the Supreme Court excluded Weibo and SNS from the relevant market. It, however, supported the analysis method of the court of first instance which emphasized the importance of dynamic competition instead of just focusing on the static competition.
It would consider platform competition more in the assessment of market position and market power than in market definition. High market share does not necessarily mean market power, as Tencent claimed, which has been upheld by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court moved further to evaluate other important factors. First, the Supreme Court took into account the current competition in the IM market in mainland China.
These IM products and services have gotten more and more reliable and mature over time with a significant user base. Especially with the development of mobile communication, new mobile IM providers continuously enter into the market. The Supreme Court focused on the major characteristics of competition in IM market: innovation competition, dynamic competition and platform competition.
Second, the Supreme Court cared more about whether Tencent had the ability to control product price, quantity or other trading conditions. In particular, the Supreme Court emphasized the importance of market entry in assessing market power. If undertakings could quickly enter into the market and effectively expand market, they will provide effective competitive constraints to the incumbent. Based on the evidence, the Supreme Court found market entry in IM market to be relatively easy. Several competitors competed on IM market.

The court also analyzed the impact of such a conduct on the security software market and found the impact was actually quite little. Therefore, the Supreme Court concluded that neither non-interoperability nor bundling conducts violates the AML.
As the first antitrust decision made by the Supreme Court, the Qihoo v. First, it sets up the standard for antitrust private litigation with detailed antitrust analysis of market definition in general, and in abuse of dominance cases in particular. Especially it lays out the road map for a proper and rigorous antitrust analysis in assessing market power and abuse of dominance issues. Second, it demonstrates that the Chinese courts, barely six years after the AML went into effect, are already adept at rendering sophisticated antitrust opinions and applying modern economic concepts.
It suggests that economic analysis, and economists, have played a significant role in private antitrust litigation in China as they have in US private antitrust litigation and in cases brought by the European Commission.
Qihoo and Tencent both retained economists and introduced economic evidence before the Supreme Court. It contributes to a better understanding of the competition issues in such fast-growing industries by considering the role of dynamic competition and multi-sided platforms. China Civil Judgment No. Market definition The Supreme Court acknowledged that it is not necessary to define a clear relevant market in every abuse of dominance case.
