conference paper description
On March 31,2012, China’s National Copyright Administration of the People’s Republic of China (NCAC) published the Draft Amendment to the Copyright Law at its website to seek public feedback. Some articles in the current Draft Amendments, such as Articles 46 and 48, have attracted the most attention from the public, especially the music industry, because they involve unauthorized use of copyrighted material. Some musician indicated that “the draft clearly favored Internet.” This paper wants to discuss those controversial articles under the Draft Amendments and some other solution except legislation for musicians to face digital era with an aim to make a healthy development of digital music sector in China.
