China adopts more measures to protect IPR on Internet

01-31-2011 14:31 BJT

BEIJING, Jan. 31 (Xinhuanet) -- Chinese government's efforts to protect online intellectual property rights (IPR) will be strengthened this year by promoting the establishment of related industry associations, said Liu Shaodong, an official in the online broadcasting department of the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT).

The number of websites that have a license for playing video content was 594 by the end of 2010, Liu said.

"We received 232 applications for the license last year but 71 of them were rejected because they didn't meet the standards of SARFT's examination system," he added.

The standard for getting licenses requires that video content provided by websites should be copyrighted and there should be a proper internal management system and enough staff.

The National Copyright Administration launched a campaign in 2005 to combat online piracy.

By the end of 2009, it had achieved significant results. As many as 2,621 cases concerning Internet piracy had been handled, among which 91 serious cases were sent to judicial authorities and 1,198 illegal websites involved in copyright infringements were forced to shut down, according to the National Copyright Administration.
