China to Launch Online Copyright Monitoring Platform

Xinhuanews, 1/17/08

Deputy director Yan Xiaohong of the National Copyright Administration of China (NCAC) announced today that the NCAC has begun the first stage of work on an Internet copyright management platform project that is set to be completed in May of this year. The platform will cover authorized audio and video materials and offer search engine-like features which will allow it to search through the audiovisual offerings on major websites. In the event that unauthorized copyrighted works are discovered, the system will inform website administrators so that they can remove it; should the work go unremoved, the case will be investigated and prosecuted.

The third national online anti-infringement campaign, conducted between August and October 2007, led to 1001 legal cases related to online copyright infringement.
