NGO set up to fight piracy in Hangzhou

    HANGZHOU, Feb. 25 (Xinhuanet) -- A non-government organization (NGO) has been set up to tackle piracy in Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang Province.

    The organization, Hangzhou Anti-Piracy Center, will collect evidence of piracy, report it and lodge lawsuits against offendersfor their clients. It claims to be the first anti-piracy NGO on China's inland.

    The founding of the NGO is due to booming market demand and limited government resources, said Zhou Xiaoxing, business director of the Center.

    The center's first task was to take legal measures against a web-site which posted a book by financial writer Wu Xiaobo without Wu's permission.

    Two magazines, a domestic audio-video producer and an overseas software company are also in cooperation with the Center.

    The efforts to combat piracy have been exclusively carried out by government organizations in the past and it is a breakthrough to entrust the NGO with some piracy cases, said Guo Shuiquan, a senior official with Hangzhou Municipal Department on Culture, Radio, TV and Publishing. Enditem
