Soft­ware copy­rights up 39.5%

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - IP SPECIAL -

There were more than 400,000 soft­ware copyright regis­tra­tions in China last year, in­creas­ing 39.5 per­cent from a year ear­lier, ac­cord­ing to a re­port un­veiled by the Copyright Pro­tec­tion Cen­ter of China on Mon­day. Guang­dong topped all pro­vin­cial-level re­gions in the num­ber of regis­tra­tions. There were 116,844 copyright own­ers, most of them com­pa­nies, that reg­is­tered soft­ware copyright last year, up nearly 31 per­cent from 2015.


After about four months of in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the po­lice and IP au­thor­ity of the Pudong New Area re­cently seized a group of 18 peo­ple in many fruit mar­kets for coun­ter­feit­ing trade­mark la­bels for im­ported fruit brands. The en­force­ment teams raided nine hide­outs and found more than 2 mil­lion coun­ter­feit la­bels. The price of im­ported fruits is usu­ally many times that of do­mes­ti­cally grown fruits of the same kinds.
