CISAC Gains Support of Chinese Copyright Authority on its Mission to Promote Creator's Rights
The CISAC team shared their plan to relocate its Asia Pacific headquarters from Singapore to Beijing
Following a productive meeting in Beijing last week, CISAC (the International Confederation of Authors and Composers Societies) has gained the support of the National Copyright Administration of China (NCAC) in protecting and promoting creators' rights in the expansive and promising region.
CISAC director general, Oliver Hinnewinkel and regional director for Asia-Pacific, Benjamin Ng travelled to the NCAC head offices to brief senior representatives on the global mission of the organisation and its specific objectives for creators in the region. Representing NCAC at the meeting were Mr Xiaohong Yan, vice minister; Mr Cike Yu, director general of the copyright department; Mr Jingsheng Cai, consultant of technology and digital publishing division of science & technology department of General Administration of Press and Publication and Ms Ping Hu, the deputy director of copyright administration division of copyright department.
"China's vast geography and tremendous growth rate makes it a key market for global and local creators so it's essential their rights are recognised," said Hinnewinkel. "The NCAC is a vital partner for CISAC to achieve this goal and we greatly appreciate their support."
The CISAC team shared their plan to relocate its Asia Pacific headquarters from Singapore to Beijing in a move that reinforces the organisation's commitment to driving royalty protection in the region. Mr Yan again welcomed this move and pledged to support the start up of this new location.
Also under discussion were each organisation's views on the revision of the Chinese copyright law; especially on the articles regarding to copyright collective management. Hinnewinkel gave illustrative examples of the relative advantages and disadvantages of countries with unique or multiple collective management societies providing useful global benchmarks to the NCAC team.
