100,000 yuan fine for uploading Olympic videos?

A Danwei reader alerted us to the following warning recently sent out on China Mobile News:

个人上传奥运赛事录像最高罚10万 ---------------- 12日,国家版权局版权管理司副司长许超透露,个人录制奥运比赛实况后擅自上传,或者视频网站盗播奥运赛事,都将面临最高10万元的处罚。(北青网)

Translated, it reads:

"Individual will face 100,000 yuan fine for uploading Olympic Games video to the Internet.
----------------
On (June) 12, Xu Chao, deputy director of the General National Copyright Administration of China, said that individual and websites will face fines as high as 100,000 yuan for uploading recordings of Olympic Games video to the internet."

How effectively this stern proclamation can be enforced is still to be seen.

Translation is not accurate:

"Individual will face 100,000 yuan fine"

should be

Individual will face up to 100,000 yuan fine

So it is the same as MPAA's strategy in the states. Since that didn't do crap in the states. I doubt it will do much in China

What the H-E-double hockey sticks are you talking about?

There is no connection between the MPAA and this fine. MPAA deals with ratings. This article talks about re-broadcasting rights and copyright infringement. Please before you turn on your computer turn on your brain. The MPAA is also very very effective and extremely powerful. Yes, it sucks in that upon investigation the MPAA just rates as they choose and the public can't know the raters identities but there is still a choice (although not an economically-wise one) for directors to choose not to submit their films to the ratings system.
