Microsoft said late on Monday that is suspending access to an MSN China microblogging site amid allegations the service is based on a rival's code.

Earlier on Monday, Canadian start-up Plurk said 80 percent of the code for Juku appeared to be lifted directly from its service.

Microsoft said it is investigating the matter, and issued a statement saying it was pulling down the Juku feature while it looks into things.
