What is protected by copyright?
Copyright protects works such as written material, music, photographs, audio-visual works, graphics, architectural works and computer software.


Why is copyright important to my business?
When copyrights are mentioned, many people quickly think about scripts, music albums and movies. While these are certainly works that are protected by copyrights, for a typical company not in the entertainment industry, copyrights are still relevant and important. For example, your company logo, product photographs on your website, instruction manuals, brochures and packaging designs are all things which can be protected by copyrights. For software companies, copyright is the main form of protection for software.


How do I obtain copyright protection in China?
In China, as with many other countries, it is not necessary to register your copyrights for protection; it is granted automatically upon completion of the work in Canada or China. It is possible, however, to register voluntarily through the Copyright Protection Center of China. Registration requires completing the application form and paying a fee. You can register directly or have an agent/lawyer make the application for you.


Why should I register for copyrights in China?
Registration is recommended for key copyrighted material as it provides an additional layer or protection and facilitates more cost-effective enforcement of your copyrights in China should a dispute arise. In China, a great emphasis is placed on having original documentation and proof of ownership. Completing the registration process for your important works will provide you with some additional flexibility in protecting your company’s intellectual property rights in China. Software companies, however, should carefully consider whether it makes sense to reveal parts of source code, a requirement for voluntary copyright registration of software.
