Forbes reports that China is considering signing up to the WIPO Internet Treaties (the WPPT and the WCT). Long Xinmin, the director of the Chinese National Copyright Administration has said that China essentially already complies with the basic requirements of the two treaties. No date has been given yet, but the Chinese legislature meets in March.

The IPKat says that this is fine in theory, but in the real world, China has difficulty enforcing its ‘standard’ copyright law, so how it will enforce these new obligations the IPKat isn’t sure.

As you point out, China is good with the laws, but weak on the enforcement, though I will say it is slowly improving.
