Copyright Issues & Electronic Publishing of Chinese Materials
Presented at EASL 2008, Vienna, September 10-12, 2008
Abstract: Intellectual property has been a complicated issue in China, especially when it comes to electronic materials. Internet tramission laws have been built through litigation. Although digital copyright is acknowledged and protected in the China under its relatively comprehensive domestic laws, regulations and policies, and also by joining the major international conventions on protection of intellectual property rights, in reality, common practices of commercial entities may often find themselves in the gray area that is hard to define or even impossible to define. As a result of the arising awareness of copyright holders, the electronic publishing insdustry in China is reshaping itself at a rather rapid pace as shown by recent incidents.
