Blacklists naming websites, mobile apps and other platforms that violate copyrights will be created as part of the latest campaign to tackle copyright infringement, China's top copyright watchdog said on Tuesday.

"This year's campaign will include blacklists and whitelists to indicate the level of copyright protection of commercial websites, Internet literature websites and apps. The whitelist will highlight good examples, and the blacklist will warn of infringement behaviors," said Yu Cike, director of the copyright management department at the National Copyright Administration.

The administration will continue to combat piracy in cloud storage services, which have provided internet users with a covert channel for illegal downloads of movies and TV series.
