Implementing Regulations of Copyright Law 2002

For some time I could not find newer implementing rules of the copyright law of China than those of 1991. That seemed odd to me, since the copyright law has been amended in 2001. So I asked around.

Today, David Carnes of China Legal Bulletin sent me the link to The Regulation on the Implementation of the Copyright Law of the People’s Republic of China is hereby promulgated for implementation as of September 15, 2002. Zhu Rongji, Premier of the State Council. See here.
Thanks a lot David.

China Legal Bulletin is a site where David is collecting relevant Chinese legislation of all kinds.

He wrote a lot about outsourcing to China for EzineMagazine, but also about intellectual property in China, see this article from November 30, 2006, here.
