Cloud Rules

Cloud Rules


On Oct 23, the National Copyright Administration issued a new regulation on online information storage services. The new regulation stipulates that cloud storage service providers have the obligation and responsibility to fight against piracy. The new rules are part of the government's anti-piracy campaign that aims to improve online copyright management.
According to the announcement, cloud storage service providers should prevent the uploading, storing or sharing of content that infringes copyright. And online information storage providers should not make it convenient for users to store illegally copyrighted works.
The new rule requires cloud storage service providers to notify copyright holders of how to make complaints about infringements and properly deal with complaints. Cloud service providers should also punish those copyright offenders by putting them on a blacklist, or suspending or terminating their services.
The national copyright authority stresses that the new regulation is not intended to restrict users' normal use of online information storage platforms but to crack down on illegal online copyright infringements. The focus of the new rule is to regulate cloud services. The authority hopes all parties will join together to maintain Internet copyright order.
