Abstract

Content platforms in China has brought concentration of power. The concentration has great impact on the development of copyright jurisprudence: the way we understand creativity, the determination of liability, and the regulation of the cultural market by the government are evolving hence a thorough check is needed. This paper argues that, the concentration of power in content platforms has accelerated the fragmentation of copyright protection and thereby is challenging the foundations of our copyright system. Furthermore, it also argues that that concentration has profound implications for the cultural censorship system of China. This paper suggests that our regulative framework should reflect those changes in its legal instruments and alleviate their negative impact on the society.
