Edited and translated by People's Daily Online

China's National Copyright Administration (NCA) recently announced that on average, only 76 percent of the movies and TV series on the country's 18 major video-sharing websites are authorized copyrighted works.

Xunlei, VeryCD, and Baidu still have not submitted a list of copyrighted movies and TV series on their video-sharing websites to the NCA, indicating that Chinese Internet companies have not paid enough attention to copyright protection.

Yu Cike, director of the NCA's copyright management department, said that in order to raise domestic Internet companies' awareness to copyright protection, the NCA, Ministry of Public Security, and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will make greater efforts in 2012 to regulate the online video-sharing sector with administrative measures and legal punishments.
