AHRC Centre

Combining British and Chinese expertise, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Centre for Digital Copyright and IP Research in China investigates global copyright challenges and opportunities for creative and technical industries in the fast developing Chinese context. Copyright and intellectual property (IP) laws are critical considerations for start-ups, entrepreneurs and corporations, particularly ‘disruptive innovators’ who use technology to shake-up existing business models.

The Centre’s research has relevance to government, business and education sectors in China and its findings aim to inform policy and support the development of consistent copyright and intellectual property regulation and to aid business innovation and commercial design across China.
