Harry Potter evoked a national copyright debate

A report by Xinhua said that “the “Harry Potter” series published its fifth installment “The Order of the Phoenix” on June 21. Beijing-based People’s Literature Publishing House started its translation as soon as it got the book’s copyright.

Some people, however, took the chance to put a Chinese version of the book on the Internet before its legal debut, bringing huge losses to the publishing house.”

The fact that Harry Potter books were badly pirated by the Internet in China evoked a national debate on “freedom” and “copyright” in cyberspace.
