In December 2020, nearly 300 practitioners in film and television from filmmakers, producers to screen writers issued a joint open letter including several proposals that called on media platforms to take a stand against plagiarism, which at the time had drawn widespread public concern. At the end of December 2020, writer-and-director Guo Jingming and TV director Yu Zheng made public apologies to Zhuang Yu and Chiung Yao for previous examples of plagiarism that they were involved in years ago. Zhuang and Chiung Yao accepted their apologies and put forward their own related initiatives to fight against plagiarism. This incident reflected calls from the industry and the public to clean up China's entertainment copyright environment, sparking extensive discussions on why copyrights should be respected and plagiarism rejected, raising the awareness of such beliefs in the creative industry as well as society as a whole.
