2018-1-18

According to the statistics from China Copyright Protection Center, in 2017, there were more than 700,000 computer software registrations in China, an increase of 85%, as compared with that of the previous year.

2017 witnessed the increase by leaps and bounds in software registration. Statistics show that in 2011, there were 109,342 pieces of registered software, which exceeded 100,000 for the first time; 218,783 pieces of registered software in 2014, which exceeded 200,000 for the first time; 404,774 pieces of registered software in 2016, which exceeded 400,000 for the first time; with an explosive growth in 2017, software registrations exceeded 700,000.

Experts say that the significant growth in registered software was the result of the rapid development of software industry, innovation capability in research and development, all of which increased the awareness of copyright protection. In addition, the exemption of registration fee for computer software copyright since April 1st, 2017, also contributed to the increase of computer software registrations.
