China’s Piracy Crackdown Closes More Than 2,000 Websites

Last Tuesday, Chinese authorities shut down more than 2,000 websites and confiscated more than 2 million pirated publications in a crackdown on copyright infringement.

According to the authorities, the nationwide law enforcement examined more or less than 63,000 websites, deleted more than 700,000 links to pirated publications, and investigated more than 500 cases which involve the online copyright infringement. Local authorities from Jilin, Shandong, Fujian, Jiangxi and some other parts of China also uncovered almost 50 cases that involve private cinemas, and copyright infringement.

The crackdown was launched last 2017 by the National Copyright Administration, the Cyberspace Administration of China, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and the Ministry of Public Security that target films, news, mobile applications, and other e-commerce platforms known to people.
