Political advisors brainstorm revision of copyright law



Chinese political advisors gathered on May 13 to discuss the revision of the country's copyright law during a biweekly session in Beijing.

Held by the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the session was presided over by Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the CPPCC National Committee. Wang noted that copyright law was the pillar of legislations on intellectual property, and significant to the creation and distribution of cultural and intellectual products, improving Chinese people's literacy in science and culture, and building the country into a global leader in innovation. He called for adherence to a people-oriented philosophy of development to properly deal with the relationship between the creation, protection and utilization of copyright, and establishing a copyright system with Chinese characteristics in the new era. A total of 12 CPPCC members and scholars put forward their suggestions on the revision, while over 160 political advisors shared their thoughts via the mobile platform of the top advisory body.
