Report Highlights China's Anti-Piracy Commitments

Software piracy in China isn’t going away anytime soon, but the effort to fight it looks as if it got a bit — just a bit — more serious, according to representatives of one of the industry’s main lobbying groups. The United States Commerce Department just released a summary of the results of a trade meeting between United States and Chinese government officials that occurred in Chengdu. Chinese officials made a number of commitments during the meeting to tackle what software makers believe is one of the worst and most fixable parts of the piracy problem in China: the use of unauthorized copies of software by government agencies and state-owned enterprises.
