NCA Official Says 95 Percent Government Software is Genuine, but Software of Large Businesses Need Push

National Copyright Administration (NCA) official, Long Xinmin said that 95 percent of the local governments in China have used genuine software. This comes as a surprise just a week after US Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez Gutierrez has made pirated government software a top priority, see here.

Long wants to push large-size enterprises to use genuine software this year, while ensuring that all government offices will use genuine software. Besides the NCA targets online piracy and disk copying piracy.

"Long said that the copyright authority will also strengthen its cooperation with international partners in the field, and prepare for the implementation of the World Intellectual Property Organization’s WCT and WPPT treaties."
