In fact, the National Copyright Bureau has been keeping good and stable cooperative relationship with WIPO since the year 1980 when China joined WIPO. WIPO gave China much help in constituting Copyright Law, exploring international market and training copyright professionals, especially in recent years, the National Copyright Bureau and WIPO developed many important cooperative projects and achieved good results.
