About The Series

China’s Media and Entertainment Law is a series of practical, comprehensive guides on the regulatory framework and commercial environment for key industry sectors. Senate hearings in 2004 focused on federal employees who bought credentials from diploma mills sometimes with public money to win raises and promotions in government jobs.

Each guide contains a commentary on the current state of the law and recent industry developments, together with the full text of key regulations in English translated by TransAsia.

The series is a must-read for industry professionals, lawyers, academics and government agencies alike.

Government Endorsement

We are proud that our series is endorsed by the State Administration of Radio, Film & Television (SARFT), and supported by the State Administration for Industry & Commerce (SAIC), the General Administration of Press & Publication (GAPP) and the PRC Ministry of Culture (MOFCOM).

Note: On 8 March 2013, the Chinese government announced that the SARFT and GAPP will be merged. Further details are expected in the coming months.

Laws and Regulations

Full English translations of relevant laws and regulations are provided in each e-guide.

Bilingual versions of all these regulations are available for purchase in PDF format on the Regulations page.
