Software piracy continues in China, despite government efforts to
crack down on software copycats. Western companies are demanding
government action to curtail the use and distribution of copied
software. But Beijing argues that it still needs time to develop a
comprehensive law to plug loopholes. "The local market is still
under-developed and therefore a total law cannot be thought about
at the moment," said Cheng Chang, Deputy Director General of the
Department of Computers in the Chinese Electronics Ministry. This
week China played hosted an international conference on computer
software and intellectual property rights, in an attempt to
mollify its foreign critics. But its represntative at the
conference admitted that it would be years before China could
completely control its market.
