BEIJING - The Chinese government will do more on intellectual property infringement and counterfeiting in e-commerce.

About three years will be required to "effectively curb" the practices which are increasing. Government supervision, self-regulation by the industry and public participation will bring healthy development to e-commerce, according to a circular issued by the State Council General Office.

There will be campaigns in agriculture, food, drugs, cosmetics, medical equipment, electric products, auto parts as well as house decoration materials, according to a post on the central government's website on Saturday.

Big data, cloud computing, the Internet of things, and mobile Internet will be used in the campaigns, according to the circular.

Internet providers are urged to cooperate with authorities.

Enterprises providing distribution, storage, mail and express services should insist on real-name systems.

The government will enhance law enforcement and encourage information sharing among regions. Cross-border coordination will be improved, the circular said.

The government will also publish "black lists."
