Capital Film and Television Legal Center, a non profit legal agency aimed at protecting the rights of film and TV industry players, was recently established in Beijing.
Established by the Beijing Television Artists Association and Beijing Lawyers Association, the agency offers legal advocacy and assistance for artists as well as TV and film companies on such matters as copyright infringement and breach of contract.
Legal scholars and veteran attorneys attached to the center offer services such as case study, seminars and phone consultations.
Director and screenwriter Zheng Xiaolong says the center could help prevent plagiarism and encourage artistic originality.
