China busts 108,000 piracy, counterfeit cases in first nine months
BEIJING -- Chinese law enforcement agencies handled 108,000 piracy and counterfeit cases in the first three quarters, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said.
Building on the latest progress, the country will launch more campaigns featuring strengthened international cooperation in 2017, it said in an online statement Friday.
Considering the challenges of cross-region and transnational cases, China still has a long way to go before it fully solves the problem of fake goods in high-street and online outlets, MOC said.
The ministry called for stronger market supervision, better prevention measures and a consolidated legal framework to fight brand fraud.
In a guideline issued on Nov 27, China vowed to improve its protection of intellectual property right, and promised to record any violations on the individual's credit records.
