He said that the government will work strenuously to encourage and supervise enterprises to build a sound environment for the software industry. He was speaking at a national legal software conference.
Vice-Premier Wu Yi, who is also head of the national IPR working team, in a letter to the conference, said, ‘Strengthening protection for legal software and creating a conducive environment is a significant part of the national intellectual property rights (IPR) strategy.’
Initiated last year by nine authorities including the copyright and information industry, commerce, finance administrations and regulators of banks, insurances and securities firms, the ongoing campaign targeting enterprises is seen as a powerful government effort to encourage the wide use of legal software.
Liu Binjie said domestic enterprises are responding positively to the country’s call to use legal computer software.
More than 1,500 large enterprises with annual sales of over RMB300 million ($40.5 million) are currently using legal computer software, a result of the nine ministries’ efforts to weed out software piracy nationwide.
The groups include the headquarters of the major 157 State-owned enterprises such as Sinopec and Huaneng Group, and their subsidiaries across China.
Another 1,300 large-scale enterprises are reportedly speeding up efforts to install licensed software on the operating system of their computers.
