Trouble brews in the reality talent show world, putting (the show formerly known as) The Voice of China at the center of a tricky legal dispute. 

The Voice of China as "pirated"?

The first four seasons of The Voice of China have been extraordinarily successful, maintaining first place in national television ratings for the vast majority of its run, according to CSM Media Research. The show's format is an adaptation of The Voice, a Dutch show which has been reproduced internationally, by local and regional media companies. 

Talpa Global, owner of the reality singing competition's format, released a statement Wednesday denouncing The Voice of China as "pirated," according to a Straits Times report. This statement follows Talpa's announcement on January 22 of intentions to pursue an interim injunction against the show's Chinese producer, Star China Media (SCM). On January 28, SCM countered, claiming Talpa Global had prematurely broken their contract.
