China's copyright watchdog pledges crackdown on film piracy: newspaper

China's top copyright watchdog has pledged to strengthen the crackdown on bootlegging of films in theaters and strictly inspect online platforms that sell or spread pirated works, the China Daily reported on Wednesday.

Inspections will focus on websites, smartphone applications, WeChat accounts and e-commerce platforms, the National Copyright Administration said early this week.

Serious piracy cases will be transferred to police departments to be dealt with as criminal matters, it said.

Several popular movies shown in cinemas, including "The Wandering Earth" that is now ranked second in China's all-time box office, were found to have been pirated during the week-long Spring Festival holiday that ended on Feb. 10.
