Beijing, April 22 (Xinhua-ANI): Chinese authorities have jailed 24 persons in eight newly concluded cases involving copyright tort, among which seven were related to production and selling of pirated disks, according to a statement from the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publication (NOAPIP)on Saturday.

A total of 34 people have been found guilty of piracy offences in the Chinese courts, and a majority of them have been handed down sentences ranging from temporary detention to six and a half years imprisonment.

The NOAPIP periodically publicizes major cases involving copyright infringement and illegal publications.
