‘BEST TEXTBOOK IN CHINA’ FACES COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

Publishers of the "best Chinese textbook in China" have been far from superlative in their attention to intellectual property rights, ruled the Shanghai Pudong New Area People's Court, and now face compensation and desist order.

Although the published book titled ‘This is the Best Chinese Textbook in China’ used essays by many writers across the world that have "nourishment and humanity" and are "insightful and appealing", some of the articles were unauthorized.

The publishers argued that they entrusted the China Written Works Copyright Society with royalties for the authors who "were unavailable". However, since the copyright society only has limited powers, it’s unconvincing and cannot exempt it from infringement.
