Framing Piracy is the first book to systematically examine film distribution--legal and illegal--in the largest and mostly untapped market in the world: Greater China. Tracing networks of optical disc (VCD, DVD) and online piracy, this book tackles issues of policy, international politics, globalization, and technology. It offers in-depth analyses of the unique market structures and copyright governance regimes in the three territories--China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan--and features a wealth of original research, new data on piracy and distribution, and interviews with global film distributors, key government officials, and film pirates. With changes and reforms afoot in China upon its entering the World Trade Organization, this timely book shows that such transformations have far-reaching implications for policy, theory, and practice.
