China's National Copyright Administration said it would intensify its fight against intellectual property theft, focusing on illegal copying of textbooks, software, audio-video products and infringements on the copyright of network works. The announcement, reported in state media, came after the administration wrapped up its annual conference in Beijing.

He also said the NCA would immediately begin work with the police and other departments on a program to inspect printing operations across the country.
