China singed MoU on copyright cooperation with WIPO


12-02-2015 11:28 BJT

Intellectual Property Rights protection is fundamental for a knowledge-based economy and as a safeguard for innovation. The China National Copyright Administration signed a Memorandum of Understanding on copyright cooperation with the World Intellectual Property Organization in Shanghai Tuesday.

It signalled a further step towards international cooperation on Intellectual Property rights protection. Over recent years, China has been transforming itself from the labor-intensive "Made-in-China" to an innovation-driven "Created-in-China". Under the new memorandum, China will broaden international cooperation and take a bigger responsibility for IPR and copyright protection in the future.

"The copyright laws had been building a balance. A balance, on one hand, the producers, the creators of the work, and on the other hand, the general public which enjoy the social benefit of the creative works," Francis Gurry, director general of World Intellectual Property Organization, said.

"Innovation will be the main driving engine of Chinese economy in the future, and we need to protect the fruits of innovation better to implement our innovation strategy. The protection of Intellectual Property and copyright need to be further improved by demands from home and abroad," Yan Xiaohong, deputy director of National Copyright Administration, said.
