ByteDance-owned short video app Douyin today announced a content promotion partnership with Tencent’s video streaming arm. As part of the agreement, Tencent will let users from Douyin, Xigua Video, and Jinri Toutiao create short-form videos using Tencent Video’s copyrighted content. Tencent has clarified the rules for secondary creation and publishing to Douyin, according to the statement. The move will ease tensions in long- and short-form video integration, a field rife with lawsuits. Tencent sued Douyin over copyright infringement in 2021, and the Xi’an Intermediate People’s Court previously ruled that the TikTok sibling needed to pay Tencent Video RMB 32 million, more than three times its initial claim.
