Chinese Pirates Keen on Pirating Official Reference Books

Updated Beijing Time

Source: Xinhua

More than 430,000 pirated books, including Chinese dictionaries and reference books, were recently confiscated, in China's largest case of book piracy in Shenzhen, south China.



The pirated editions included the Xinhua Dictionary and Modern Chinese Dictionary, which are widely used by students in elementary, high schools and colleges, said an official with the Commercial Press, the publishing house of the "Xinhua Dictionary".

In some areas, he said, there are two to three times as many pirated reference books as there are officially published versions. The fake copies were made from paper that is easily ripped, had blurred print and were missing pages.

The official estimated the annual illegal profit from book piracy was more than 100 million yuan (12.5 million U.S. dollars), severely infringing on the copyright of the Commercial Press and its writers.

The pirated books from 100 publishing houses were found in a 600-square-meter storeroom in the back of a bookstore, according to police.

Deng Xiaojun, the manager of the bookstore, said he has been doing business for a long time and most of the books came from Guangdong, Jiangsu, Hainan and other provinces.
