China stiffens its copyright laws including music aspects
Posted on: 17 novembre 2020, by : Joe Sparrow

China’s copyright laws are getting an update, including more careful definitions of copyrighted works, and much bigger punitive damages for infringement.
Music is included: with the industry having lobbied hard for the creation of public performance rights and broadcasting rights in China, both have now been implemented in law.
There are some big implications for short-video platforms like Douyin (TikTok’s Chinese version), as the use of music in video is now clearly defined, and owners of songs have the right to exercise their copyright where those songs are used in user-generated videos.
