The world best pirate market country?

 I have been Shanghai two years ago. Shanghai is a global city, with influence in commerce, culture, finance, media, fashion, technology, and transport. Frankly, I considered China as undeveloped country. However, when I got to Shanghai, the city took my breath away because it looked like more developed than Seoul which is the capital of South Korea.

China is the fourth largest country in the world; the land is about 9,596,961㎢ and is the world’s most populous country, with a population of over 1.3 billion. 14 Chinese languages are used over the country and the two dominant ones are Mandarin which is spoken by about two-thirds of the population and Cantonese which is spoken in the area that is more open to outside like South China and Hong Kong. Because the languages are a little bit different according to provinces, sometimes Chinese people cannot understand what people from other province are saying, even though they have the same nationality.

 These days, China has become a new emerging country with rapid economic growth. However, if China really wants to be a member of advanced countries, this country has to escape the ignominy of the world best pirate market. According to the article published by The Korean Times, software piracy is most rampant in China, which has an illegal copying rate of 77 percent with a financial hit of $ 8.9 billion. Chinese people commits illegal replica not only software but car, smart phone, DVD, and world famous brands like Gucci, Prada, and Chanel.

Theses are some examples of illegal replica.

As these examples show, the illegal copy in China is a serious situation. Experts say Beijing has been reluctant to use criminal penalties against business owners who violate intellectual property rights despite increasing complaints from foreign companies and goverments. Therefore, the Chinese government has to take a measure to protect other contries’ intellectual property rights as soon as possible.
