This is not exactly news, since it was announced last January, but I only recently learned that LexisNexis (hereinafter "Lexis") has launched a Chinese law service called LexisNexis China Online (http://research.lexisnexis.com.cn). According to the press release announcing the launch, much of the content will come from Lexis's acquisition of PRCinvestment.com, a tax and financial information provider, and from licensing agreements with the State Information Center (the party behind the chinalaw.net website) and Beijing University's chinalawinfo.com (for its English-language content on lawinfochina.com).
Although the "launch" was announced last January, that does not seem to mean the service was actually available; a further press release in July announced that the service had just been "unveiled".
If anyone has actually used this service, please let us know what you think. This post is open for comments.
