BEIJING, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Chinese prosecutors indicted 4,328 people in 2,144 cases of intellectual property rights (IPR) violation and the production and sale of counterfeit or shoddy goods in the first 10 months of 2010, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) said Wednesday.

The SPP also ratified the arrest of 4,104 people in connection with 2,185 such cases during the period, according to SPP data released at a meeting in Beijing on a campaign to crack down on IPR violation.

Hu Zejun, acting SPP Deputy Procurator-General, said at the meeting that procuratorates across the country must "seriously crack down" on IPR violations and the crime of producing and selling counterfeit or shoddy goods in the half-year campaign that started in October.

The campaign will target IPR violation in the media, publishing, entertainment, high-tech and agriculture industries, Hu said.

At the same time, the campaign will focus on cracking down on the IPR violations of books and software, he said.

He called for more supervision of civil servants to prevent them from being "protection umbrellas" for such crimes.
