On the occasion of the 12th World Intellectual Property Day on April 26, 2012, Baidu, one of the leading Internet companies in China, officially launched a link on its home page to promote the protection of intellectual property on the Internet in collaboration with the National Copyright Administration of the People's Republic of China.

It is regarded as "a new attempt of China-style copyright protection" since the Internet piracy has become a worldwide problem.

Qu Sanqiang, professor of Intellectual Property Law in the Peking University Law School, said that it is doomed to be a tough war for the government, Internet operators, the copyright owners and general public that how a work can keep balance between free communication and copyright protection.

Piracy can be seen everywhere on the Internet.

The Internet platform has become a hard hit area of infringement of copyright.

In the eyes of network communication expert Kuang Wenbo, who is also a professor of the School of Journalism and Communication of Renmin University, almost all of the domestic websites in China did not escape from piracy.

Why does the Internet have so much magic? Zhang Hongbo, director general of the China Written Works Copyright Society, believes that the copy phenomenon is everywhere and happens all the time in the age of Internet, which has led to the inability of traditional copyright protection.

The concept of payment before using has not yet been formed.
