China launches campaign against online piracy

The Chinese government has launched a new four-month campaign against online piracy, through a combined effort by four ministry departments to boost supervision over Internet services and content providers as well as propose guidelines for e-commerce platforms to create copyright rules and penalties.

It was reported that the inter-agency coordination between the National Copyright Administration, Ministry of Public Security, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and the State Internet Information Office will highlight supervision over content providers, online storage and search engine services, and e-commerce platforms. Local authorities will be required to conduct special investigations and boost routine inspections over online publications, said the report.

The statement also proposed supervisory guidelines for e-commerce platforms under which service providers will need to create specific rules for copyright protection and internal penalties for violations.
