'Landmark Copyright Cases in China' provides a comprehensive introduction to the Chinese copyright system that includes both administrative and judicial mechanisms. With China's third major amendment of its Copyright Law now well underway, the international significance of China's handling of copyright matters comes into a clearer focus. This book, an English translation of Chief Judge Luo Dongchuan's recent selection and detailed analysis of twenty-five landmark copyright cases decided by the Chinese courts in the past few years, provides an in-depth understanding of the fundamental theories of copyright as interpreted in Chinese jurisprudence and of the sophisticated balance of interests among copyright owners, communicators of works and the public domain in China. Some contemporary issues, including criteria for copyright infringement, influence of new technologies and new business modes to the copyright system, are furthermore analyzed. Translated by He Jiong.
