Bottom line: Tencent's online literature unit is likely to make a Hong Kong IPO later this year, and should get a relatively strong reception due to strong backing and its market leading position for a product with stable long-term demand.
Tencent literature unit eyes HK IPO
If you don't succeed the first, second and third times, then try again. That could well be the mantra for the digital literature unit of former online entertainment giant Shanda, which has gone through quite a few attempts at an IPO, only to stumble each time. This particular story has quite a ......

Bottom line: Foundering prospects of cross-border tie-ups involving DreamWorks and Paramount shows the love affair between Hollywood and China may be entering a new phase of lowered, more realistic expectations.

The old saying says that what goes up must come down, and that certainly appears to be the case with new reports of the unraveling of two more China-Hollywood tie-ups.

Bottom line: Yidao's announcement of plans for an IPO hint at a looming sale of the company by controlling stakeholder LeEco, which could be mulling sales of other recently purchased assets in a bid to ease its cash-crunch.
Yidao prepares for IPO
What do you do when you're running low on cash? The answer is obvious for private car services firm Yidao: make an IPO. That would normally seem like a relatively smart and logical choice for most up-and-coming companies, but Yidao isn't quite one of those. For starters, the company operates in an extremely competitive......

The company that made its name from a series of games based on the famous Chinese novel Journey to the West is trying to turn that story into reality, as NetEase (Nasdaq: NTES) eyes expansion outside its home market.

伯格曼的《婚姻生活》,上次在苏州只看了前半部分,我承认,看的这一半,我误解了这部电影。当我今天看完它后半部分,我发现这是一部多么细腻伟大的电影!
当时看的前半部分,正好电影放到丈夫乔汉回到家,冷漠地告诉妻子玛丽安,他爱上了一个女孩,马上要动身去意大利。妻子试图挽留,可是一切都无能为力,乔汉对新欢保拉深深地着迷,他告诉妻子,保拉那么肆无忌惮地告诉我她之前的性经历,可是我爱她,我选择跟她在一起她感到很吃惊,现在我要和她一起去意大利,我不会回来了。无论玛丽安怎么哀求,他都义无反顾地提着箱子走了。所有的二、三流电影都是这样,省略了一切麻烦的过程,然后追求个人的幸福,毫无保留地迎接新生活。这的确让人......

Bottom line: LeSport's reported default on payments for Asian Football Confederation soccer games marks the start of the popping of a bubble for sports broadcasting rights dating back to last year.
LeSports soccer drive on the skids
In what could be the first domino to fall in China's overinflated market for sports broadcasting rights, the sports unit of cash challenged LeEco (Shenzhen: 300104) has reportedly defaulted on payment for one of several high-priced packages it purchased last year. In this case, it appears that fans of Asian Football Confederat......

你的名字,TA的版权?

本文由北京君众律师事务所创始合伙人张明君律师原创。
近日,日本动画电影《你的名字》正在热映,上映近5日时,累计票房就已超过3.67亿元人民币,据悉该片在日本国内票房收入达到了超过200亿日元,可谓是15年来日本影片票房之最。
与《你的名字》千回百转的剧情相似,影片引进大陆的过程也可谓是一波三折。从起初的有望引进,到后来因480P盗版资源流出加之中国网络上出现了大量的盗版资源,使得正版电影引进计划被叫停,直至11月份光线传媒拿下该片的国内发行权,才让影片有了登上院线的希望。
而令人尴尬的是,在大陆地区放映之前,其高清盗版DVD就已经出现在市场。

李安新电影,美国苦运命

吴澧 12月10日

专栏作家

李安大导的新电影《大兵林恩的中场走秀》 Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk,似乎发行时机对票房不利。11月18日在美国铺开时,人们还陷没在10天前特朗普大选得胜的震惊或振奋中。而这次大选,伊拉克战争并不是一个总统候选人激烈辩论的话题,选民们大概也不想让这部虽有轻松讽刺但到底主题沉重的电影点醒这一争议。真是可惜了。电影其实很不错,毕竟同名小说原著得了2012年全美书评人奖,只要中规中矩拍出来,就很值得一看。
本·方丹这部小说,多次被人与约瑟夫·海勒的《二十二条军规》相比。封底印着的赞辞里,就有位老兵作家说:This book will be the Catch-22 of the Iraq War。海勒的黑色幽默经典,肆意讽刺二战时的......

离开城市的喧嚣,中国美术馆陈师曾诞辰140周年特展,是一个真正值得去的展览。
震撼我的,不仅是美术,还有作品中蕴含的那种坚定、坚韧、坚毅的文化和精神,那是只属于那个时代人的精神。
这种精神自有渊源。陈师曾1876年生于湖南凤凰。祖父陈宝箴,清末维新派著名人物,官至兵部侍郎,湖南巡抚,因支持维新,被慈禧赐死。父陈三立,字伯严,号散原。清进士,官至吏部主事,著名诗人,维新派人物。弟陈寅恪,更是不必多说。
了解他的家学后,对上面这件《北京风俗·墙有耳》,顿生理解。它作于1914—1915年间,描绘的是民国初年,袁世凯当政期间,茶馆内外,遍布密探,草木皆兵的场景。旁边文字,深邃有力。

1942年,一群胸怀改变乡村的教育理想的老师们建立并维持着乡村学校,虽然冒领着“驴老师”的工资,依然条件艰苦,有限的水源,不断减少的生源是他们会议的主要内容,但是他们依然充满干劲,面对挫折,他们会四手相叠,“聚聚气儿”,决心要改变中国农村的“贫、愚、弱、私”。

完美的陌生人

邱敏 09月19日

这部电影关于手机里的秘密和人性的复杂,用一个故事讲明白:一帮老朋友在月食那天举行家庭聚会,有人建议做一个游戏,把手机放在餐桌上,所有电话、短信、邮件在晚宴过程中共享。结果一共享,从亲情、爱情到友情全都出现了几乎崩溃的局面,这个游戏变成了一个连环杀手,每一个人都不可避免地中刀。不过这部电影并不消极,意大利式的幽默感对应了那句话,“人类一思考,上帝就发笑”。
我们每天都在看手机,手机这块黑匣子封藏着我们每个人的秘密,真实、虚假、暧昧、谎言、暴力、威胁……全在里面。一旦打开,就是潘多拉的盒子。
人与人之间的关系是脆弱的,很多人看了这部电影说,不要考验人性,但重要的是人性......

郭杰群 在美国,地产开发商将出售资产所得在一定期限内进行类似房产的再投资可以享受一定的免税条款。这在我国当前还不具备,因此在一定程度上制约了地产商的能动性。

Lypsey3543 “据个人了解,中国一线城市住宅投资收益率不会高于3,美国可以达到6。”作者这里说的应是租金收益率。首先,因(特大)人口增长加速,在新兴市场投资房产,主要看资本利得,动态租金收益要会延后实现,静态比较同期没有太大意义。其次,物业年均持有成本,纽约和中国一线城市不可比。第三,纽约和曼哈顿是两个概念。离开曼岛,租金中位数值完全是不是一个档次。而中国一线城市的租金上涨范围更大。因为仍处于成长期。总体而言,虽然在中美两国都投资的是房产,但从收益分布特征和波动率来说,完全可以看作是差别极大的两类资产。就如同高等级债券和蓝筹股票,横比收益没有意义,因为后者大幅超越。归根结底更可能是风险偏好异质性(含Demographic factors)和经济周期所处阶段决定了投资者更偏爱哪一类。
