2021 marks the start of China's 14th Five-Year Plan period. All localities and departments are drawing up blueprints for the period based on a review of their experiences gained from the 13th Five-Year Plan period. My question is, what has been done regarding copyrights? Could you please introduce?

Shen Changyu:

Mr. Yu will answer this question.

Yu Cike:

During the 13th Five-Year Plan period, guided by Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, our work on copyright has served the central task of economic development and the overall interests of the country. Focusing on copyright creation, protection and application, we have improved policies, strengthened supervision, optimized services and boosted the copyright industry. With these efforts, we have contributed to the implementation of the innovation-driven development strategy and the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects. Following are the main achievements that were made regarding copyright during the 13th Five-Year Plan period.

First, our system of copyright laws has been continuously improved. We have actively advanced the third amendment to China's Copyright Law. On November 11, 2020, the 23rd session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress approved the amended copyright law, which will come into force on June 1, 2021. We have continuously improved relevant laws and regulations and issued many regulatory documents, including the Notice on Strengthening Copyright Management of Online Literary Works and the Notice on Regulating the Copyright Order of Photography Works. Our system of copyright laws, which both suits China's national conditions and accords with international rules, has seen constant improvement and the copyright work is now much more law-based.

Second, copyright protection in China has been continuously improved. We have launched the "Sword Net" campaign for several consecutive years now to crack down on online copyright infringement. Fruitful results have been achieved. We have established an early warning mechanism for major film and television productions to protect their copyrights. We have improved the administrative law enforcement system for copyright and established an administrative copyright protection mechanism with Chinese characteristics. The achievements in promoting the use of copyrighted software have been recognized both at home and abroad and helped build up China's good image in IPR protection.

Third, the quality and efficiency of copyright work have been continuously improved. According to the deployment of the central authority, we promoted the demonstrations of copyright work, carried out the pilot construction of the national copyright innovation development base, established and improved the national copyright expo's authorized transaction system, and promoted healthy and rapid development of the copyright industry. We have straightened the copyright registration mechanisms and successfully publicized and popularized copyright issues. The copyright social service system is improving.

Fourth, international copyright cooperation and exchanges have been continuously deepened. We have carried out international copyright cooperation and promoted the establishment of a new type of multilateral and bilateral copyright relationship with win-win cooperation at its core. China has actively participated in the formulation of international copyright rules, and promoted the entry into force of the Beijing Treaty on Audiovisual Performances on April 28, 2020. This made it the first international intellectual property treaty to be adopted in China and the first to be named after a Chinese city since the founding of the People's Republic of China. We have broadened the channels for publicity abroad and enhance China's influence in international copyright work.

At present, we are implementing the requirements of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council and actively planning copyright work during the 14th Five-Year Plan period. To seek a new chapter and start a new journey during the 14th Five-Year Plan period, copyright work must be guided by Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, embody the spirit of a series of important speeches by General Secretary Xi Jinping on strengthening the protection of IPR, fully implement the decisions and deployments of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, persist in seeking progress while maintaining stability, and keep to the right path and make innovations. Additionally, it must adhere to the concept that copyright protection is needed to protect innovation, vigorously implement the innovation-driven development strategy, insist on grasping the new development stage, implement the new development concept, foster a new development paradigm, persist in serving the overall situation of theoretical publicity work, maintain ideological security, promote cultural prosperity and development, and persist in advancing the modernization of the copyright governance system and governance capabilities. With the central goal of building China's strength in copyright, with a basic task of comprehensively strengthening copyright protection and accelerating the development of the copyright industry as well as further improving the copyright work system as the main measure, we'll continuously improve the level and effectiveness of copyright work and provide stronger copyright support for promoting high-quality development to build a socialist innovative country with advanced culture.

On behalf of the NCAC, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the media outlets and journalists for their concern, help, and support regarding copyright work. Thank you.
