CFCPA (China Film Copyright Protection Association) announced the start of anti-piracy campaign and is now targeting websites 365pub.com and Cnnip.com with a number of Internet cafes, accusing them of the copyright infringement.
Recently the China Film Copyright Protection Association has held a press conference, where it announced to have filed civil lawsuit related to copyright. It’s interesting as it’s their first ever lawsuit since the Association transformed from a trade association to a rights management outfit two years ago.
The group is said to have filed an accusation in copyright violation against Cnnip.com and 365pub.com websites, alongside with a few unknown Internet cafes. CFCPA is now demanding a public apology, an end to the violation, and monetary damages, of course.
Zhu Yongde, chairman of the CFCPA, explained that the rights on pirated movies belong to the CFCPA members having authorized the group to manage them. He also described the scheme 365pub.com and Cnnip.com used to infringe copyright: the websites would distribute the copyrighted movies to Internet cafes named in the lawsuit, and would then charge them user fees for such a privilege.
The producer of the popular local action film “Ip Man 2” (one of the films observed to be actively pirated), An Xiaofen estimated that playing illegal movies online for only 3 days probably cost them $15 million at the box office. The producer clarified that the estimation were true and he would really lose $15 million if the number of unauthorized downloads has exceeded 10 million, providing that at least 1/3 of pirates otherwise purchase a legal copy of the movie.
The China Film Copyright Protection Association continues the theoretical statistics, estimating that around 96% of all the films available online in the country are pirated with just 10% of the movies played in theaters really making any profit.
The group believes that the part of the problem is the fact that the accused infringers are most likely to be fined well below the top limit of the penalty of $74,000. On the contrary, as the result of the Chinese court system, the offenders sometimes are ordered to pay rights owners ludicrous $15 USD.

|Jeez I am LMFAO on this one..|
the CFCPA is run by the chicom government. The "film Studios" are government run. So behind the scenes you now have a government crying about "copyright" yea right..
Remember this "Film" Company has nuclear weapons pointed at nations around the world.
Also for stealing in China; corruption, etc. They put a bullet in the back of your head in about two hours after the sentance of death is given. They also now have "death" vans going from town to town killing people..
Yep an upstanding "Film" Company..
