国家版权局最近发布了一套新的版权保证注册规则,以取代其当前的系统。的"版权承诺登记办法" (the "Measures")将于2011年1月1日生效。版权和其他产权一样,可以作为一种财务担保。中国目前尚未更新 copyright pledges registration system since it went into effect 上 September 23, 1996. The key provisions of the 措施 are highlighted below.

发行机构的统一

在旧制度下,国家版权局有权指定专门机构 with the sole responsibility of registering pledges and issuing certificates. The 措施 simplified the process by eliminating the intermediary and directly declaring that the State 版权Bureau is the agency responsible for registering copyright pledges.

Creation of a 寄存器 of 版权Pledges

该《办法》现在要求当事方共同向国家版权局申请将质押记录在《版权承诺书》(《“Register”). The registration becomes effective 上 ly if it appears in the 寄存器, which is a public record. The 寄存器 contains comprehensive information regarding the pledge, including any changes to assignments of the pledge. If a dispute arose between the parties, the information in the 寄存器 will prevail as fact, unless either party presents evidence that the information in 寄存器 was inaccurately recorded.

Centralizing 版权Pledge Registration

在中国之下’当前的质押登记制度和相关的物权法规定,当事方’质押合同是进行注册的唯一文件。 《办法》简化了程序,因此必须将与质押有关的合同作为申请材料的一部分,但登记册在确定登记生效日期方面起着核心作用。使注册在进入注册管理机构后生效,这有助于公众搜索版权保证时信息的统一性和准确性。
