Shopkeepers wait for customers at a store selling pirated DVDs in Beijing
Shopkeepers wait for customers at a store selling pirated DVDs in Beijing April 24, 2007. U.S. complaints to the WTO over commercial piracy in China will "badly damage" cooperation, Vice Premier Wu Yi warned on Tuesday, insisting that China has made great strides in protecting patents and copyrights. Earlier this month, Washington launched two cases at the World Trade Organization claiming that Beijing was not doing enough to punish illegal copiers of films and music and that its restrictions on entertainment imports violated trade rules.

Shredded pornographic DVDs are seen on the ground during a ceremony to destroy pirated and pornographic material in Beijing April 14, 2007. China has launched its latest campaign against Internet pornography. Pornography was among the vices nearly wiped out in China under the strict and puritanical rule of Mao Zedong. But since economic reforms began and social controls have loosened, it has become more readily available. REUTERS/Claro Cortes IV (CHINA)
