Recovery is based on the Ministry of the inspection report, says Helsingin Sanomat.

The reason for the recovery is that state subsidies have been used for purposes other than those originally granted.

According to Helsingin Sanomat, the recovery targets are for the 2014 general allowance and special allowances granted to the development of coaching skills dating back to 2013.

According to the report, among other things, the Sochi Olympics Olympic Committee had a hotel room, and leased them to the show for our guests.

The Olympic Committee had also acquired the Nordic Business Forum, a hundred tickets, with a value of EUR 30 000.

This year an operating grant will be paid back EUR 200 000, and the remaining 235 000 Olympic Committee must be paid by the end of this year.

Nintendo is being sued for copying elements of its Nintendo Switch console, allegedly infringing patents held by Gamevice.

Gamevice, which designs clip-on controllers for mobile phones and tablets, has called for a complete sales ban of the popular console, as well as damages.

A court filing in California claims Nintendo's sales of its successful Switch console have caused "damage and irreparable injury to Gamevice".

Nintendo has reported unprecedented interest in its Switch console.

Gamevice's patent for a similar mobile gaming controller was originally granted in September 2015.

It released its Wikipad tablet controller in 2013, which allowed tablets to slot into the console.

What happened: Beijing Transport Bureau on Friday announced a RMB 50,000 (around $7,230) fine against Hello TransTech for adding new bikes to the city without permission.

It is the first time the Beijing government has penalized a bike rental company.

According to a Weibo announcement posted Friday by the government agency, Hello TransTech was originally granted permission to replace 19,000 damaged bikes in suburban areas of the city in December 2017.

However, there are more than 50,000 bikes across the city.

In addition to the fine, the Ant Financial-backed mobility firm was told to remove the additional bikes within 10 working days.

Why it’s important: Hello TransTech apologized for its mistake in a response released Friday, and explained that the actual demand for shared bikes has been increasing since the spring.

Plans to provide Wi-Fi internet access on planes across Europe could be grounded as satellite operator Inmarsat faces a court challenge from rivals.

ViaSat, Eutelsat and Panasonic have lodged a complaint with the European Court of Justice seeking an injunction on the proposed service, which is expected to be a lucrative new business for the FTSE 250 company.

Inmarsat launched the required satellite last week and plans to switch on the Continent-wide European Aviation Network (EAN) towards the end of the year, after it gains clearance from national telecoms regulators.

Rupert Pearce, Inmarsat chief executive, said EAN is destined to be one of its biggest revenue sources, eventually providing in excess of $1bn a year (£770m).

Last year Inmarsat had total revenues of $1.3bn.

But its rivals argue that the company has twisted the grounds on which its licence was originally granted in 2009.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has stepped up to represent a small, independent online language teacher who has been threatened with a lawsuit by a British publisher that claims the teacher is infringing an American patent issued back in 2000 for a particular audio-based teaching technique.

Amazingly, the use of a pause button to temporarily stop the lesson.

The Barcelona-based teacher, Mihalis Eleftheriou, runs a website known as "Language Transfer," where he offers free online courses in French, Turkish, Greek, and many other languages.

The site has no advertising, and he told Ars recently that about 400 people per month donate a collective $1,800 to help defray ongoing costs.

A Virginia attorney, Christopher Foley, representing publisher Hodder & Stoughton recently demanded that Eleftheriou halt any publication of audio lessons in the United States or face a potential lawsuit.

Hodder & Stoughton claims to represent the "exclusive licensee" of a patent originally granted to a now-deceased French teacher, Michel Thomas.
