State Council Legislative Affairs Office seeks comments for the latest revision to Copyright Law
The State Council Legislative Affairs Office (SCLAO) released the latest draft and explanation of the copyright law revision that had previously been submitted by the National Copyright Administration (NCA) to the SCLAO for public comment.
This revision was the first since the second draft in July 2012 and will be submitted to the Standing Committee of the People's Congress for final review and promulgation.
The draft amendment to the Copyright Law will see miscreants face fines of five times their illegal gains, or up to 250,000 yuan when the exact sum cannot be established. Previously the figures were three times and 100,000 yuan.
Any opinion should be submitted before July 5.
