Chinese IPR authorities urge Google to respect regulations

By Super Admin

Beijing, Feb 4(ANI): Referring to Google issues in China, Chinese intellectual property rights (IPR) authorities have said that information transmission on the Internet should be prevented if it is found to be violating regulations set by the authority.

This was stated by the spokesman of the State Intellectual Property Office Yin Xintian when asked about Google's threat to retreat from China over Internet management disputes.

Xintian also said that it had been China's consistent stance.

"Information flow on the Internet should follow the basic principle of respecting and protecting the intellectual property rights of others," The China Daily quoted Xintian, as saying.

Google was recently involved in a dispute with the China Writers Association (CWA) before it threatened to pull out of China last month, saying it was no longer satisfied with filtering search results.

In October 2008, the China Written Works Copyright Society had revealed about 18,000 titles by 570 Chinese writers, which had been scanned by Google and put in its online library.

The authors also claimed that they were neither informed nor paid. (ANI)
