Cinemas and video-on-demand platforms targeted in anti-piracy campaign

Updated: Mar 7

The National Copyright Administration on 7 February 2024 announced that it will collaborate with relevant departments including the National Film Administration, Ministry of Public Security, and Ministry of Culture and Tourism to carry out special initiatives for the protection of copyrights in cinema films during the Spring Festival season.

The four departments will focus on key cinema films, particularly those included in the National Copyright Administration's alert list for the protection of key works.

Specific actions include issuing copyright warnings and alerts to major online service providers and cinema chains, strengthening routine law enforcement inspections and online patrols, intensifying copyright supervision and monitoring of cinemas, video-on-demand platforms, and related online service providers, and enhancing efforts to investigate and prosecute cases of cinema film piracy and unauthorized distribution. These measures aim to maintain a sound copyright order in the film market.

Simultaneously, the National Copyright Administration has released the first batch of copyright protection alert list of key works for 2024, which includes popular Spring Festival films such as "Article 20," "YOLO," and "Pegasus 2." Additionally, programs related to the CCTV Spring Festival Gala and Lantern Festival Evening Show in 2024 have also been included in the alert list.
