Reorganisation of Copyright Management in China 

According to recent reports from China Written Works Copyright Society (CWWCS), IFRRO’s RRO member, the current five CMOs in China will no longer be under the direct administration of the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of China (SAPPRFT) as previously required by the Chinese government. However, the CMOs will still be under the supervision of the National Copyright Administration of China (NCAC), in accordance with the Regulations on Copyright Collective Management. It is believed that these changes to be effective as from May, will mean more independence for CMOs and a more market-oriented approach.
